Come To School In Person Or Withdraw, Florida District Tells Students

The latest example comes from Orange County, one of the Florida school districts that originally fought the state’s ban on strict mask mandates. Until recently, the district allowed families to keep their children home if they had worries about coronavirus, even if their children weren’t infected or exposed.
