Today the following email has been sent to the Richland Two school board:
Members of the board and trustees-elect Holmes and McKie,
Please watch the first 15 minutes of the reconvened 1/11/2022 meeting (YouTube
) and be aware of the amount of time Teresa Holmes holds her face shield, instead of wearing it.
You, except Teresa, wore your masks. The staff, audience, security officers and deputy sheriffs were required to wear their masks.
Why is the facemask rule not imposed on Holmes? She could wear it and speak into her microphone; she should wear it all the time, just as everyone else is required to do. Should she be subject to arrest by deputies for violating the Richland County facemask ordinance?
I request a written response from the District that will assure me of my physical safety from COVID exposure at future meetings by requiring Holmes to wear her facemask/shield.
This email was sent to Trustees Agostini, Scott, McFadden, Manning and Caution-Parker, to trustees-elect Holmes and McKie, with copies to Supt. Davis, Security Director Marq Claxton, Chief of Operatons, Will Anderson, Chief Financial Officer Harry Miley, Diversity Chief DEI Officer Helen Grant, and Chief Communications Officer Libby Roof.
The board has the authority to insist on compliance by Teresa Holmes. If they can't get it done, the supt. can direct Marq Claxton to sanction Holmes and issue her a Trespass Notice for refusing to wear the mask/face-shield on school property.
