PROVENZANO: ”A few weeks ago I ran into my teacher outside of school. She didn’t even recognize me because she’s never seen my face before. Well, I knew it was her because she sits at her desk a lot without a mask on. I know my teacher has asthma and everything, but I understand why it’s hard for her to wear a mask. And I think she should have that choice. But I should too. I have allergies and I feel really anxious with my face covering. But I’m not allowed a mask break like her. It seems unfair. All of this seems unfair and it doesn’t make sense. I miss seeing people’s faces. I miss the way things used to be. I’m scared they’ll never go back to normal. Breathing freely doesn’t seem like something we should have to ask any other people for permission for. Please make masks optional today. It would be so awesome to end the school year on a really happy note like that. Thank you for your time."
