Back to School

Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Where I live they are preparing to send the kids back to school when we still have reported cases of COVID-19. They did say, however, that they will be providing clothes masks for them to wear while at school, but they are only giving them just one. So, in order for my grand-kids to be protected, I am making them extra masks so they won't have to wear the same one everyday. I will be checking with the school system once I find out who I need to check with, because i would like to make extra masks for other students and teachers as well. Hopefully, I will be successful. Wish me luck.

    Awesome to make masks for the children. Our state just moved the age for masks down to 5. It was age 12, now its 5. The need is real. Stay strong! emoticon emoticon

    Wishing you lots of luck and praying for the kids and their loved ones to stay safe. What a blessing for you to make masks for so many as I am sure that will be some help. They haven't decided what to do with schools here yet, but it is a very scary time for all. emoticon and emoticon for your generous endeavor.

    I am sure that you making masks for your grandchildren will surely help not needing to wearing the same mask everyday. Making masks for other students and teachers will help them too, thank you for doing a great service to you grandchildren's school.

    In many places, it’s just too soon. I work for a large Fla school district at the Administrative offices and have been making masks too for anybody who needs them. We’re supposed to be provided with five washable masks, but it hasn’t happened so I’m making more for my coworkers. Keep sewing!

    Memphis is 100% wrong for this. I am glad my kids are grown. I would NOT be sending mine back. No way.

    Good luck and thank you for helping with mask-making work!
    I’m getting quite the collection. Fabric makes a difference - the homemade masks I have (others made them) get soggier more quickly due to thicker fabrics. Or maybe some poly content?
    The one that work best for full days (I have one more to test drive) so far are two lighter weight layers. They get damp, but not soggy.

    I am happy my GDS will be going back to school. We were to start 8/17 but now the public school here in Florida says they are waiting until the 24th, so I don't know if we will. I doubt it. they go to a private school.
