Hutsonville, IL. (ECWd) –
During tonight’s special meeting, the Hutsonville School District voted unanimously to hire Attorney Thomas DeVore for possible litigation (see Agenda item here) against the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education in response to the Joint Directives recently published by both the IDPH and ISBE concerning requirements of school for wearing of masks, temperature checks, and occupancy limits in the upcoming school year.
DeVore was also hired to represent the school board in developing guidelines to use in the upcoming school year.
Several parents spoke in favor of this decision, none spoke in opposition.
The video of this meeting is in a previous article (HERE).

who’s paying for all these lawsuits? Taxpayers?
Nothing to do with this, but I can’t stand this new website.or format

I mean, the lawsuits likely cost a lot less than these mandates will cost if they aren’t stopped? I believe this particular attorney is representing the first 20 school districts that contact him free of charge.

Requring a face covering whilst a social distance standard is maintained wreaks of being overly restrictive; especially for students in the Early Childhood Education group, My gosh ISBE, publicatiions of the American Pediatric Physicians are among the document references!

I also think these two agencies completely remiss to have excluded recommendations for respiratory hygiene such as cough and sneeze etiquette. The CDC has a poster!
