WAUKESHA WISCONSI — A parent has filed a lawsuitWaukesha school district and its school board were attacked. The mother claimed her child was exposed to COVID-19 by another classmate.
Rose Glen Elementary School is the school where the child attends. The suit claims that the district violated the rights of the boy to be protected at school from state-created threats.
“We received a COVID-19 complaint yesterday for the purpose of filing a complaint. We have not been served. We immediately contacted the attorneys and were advised not respond to this time by our counsel,” Waukesha District Superintendent James Sebert declared last Thursday.
A lawsuit claimed that a Waukesha school policy regarding masks was in place last year. However, it expired on May 12. The district has not yet implemented a new policy regarding masks for the 2021-2022 school years.
The mother stated that they sent their children to school wearing masks, even though the district did not require them. According to her, other students were not required to wear masks to school.
According to the lawsuit, a classmate of the child arrived at school on September 16-17 with COVID-19 symptoms. The child was then sent home. According to reports, the child sat beside that classmate each day. In the statement, the mother stated that her child was symptomatic since September 19, and she tested positive. The mother also stated that her other children were also enrolled at the school district when they became ill with COVID-19 just a few days later.
According to the lawsuit, all children were sick and missed school and extracurricular activities for several days.
Funding is provided by the Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC.
Kirk Bangstad, founder of Super PAC, stated that he doesn’t want a 1-year lawsuit. “We want a court order in which a judge states, ‘Until the defense has said and the prosecutors have spoken, we’re going put masks on those children who are too young for vaccination.’
Bangstand also has the Mincoqua Brewing Company located in Northern Wisconsin. He and his restaurant attracted national attention last year when they put up a huge Biden-Harris sign and released a progressive beer line.
He hopes that schools across Wisconsin will follow suit and have to adhere to the mask requirements through the class action lawsuit.
“We are trying to define a class of school boards involving all school boards that are not following the COVID precautions,” he said.
The Eastern District of Wisconsin was the place where the lawsuit was filed. Bangstand plans to file a second lawsuit in the western region.
