California parents and teachers who oppose school vaccine mandates are planning a statewide walkout Monday, according to reports.
News about the planned protest has spread on social media, with organizers suggesting that parents pull their children out of school and that teachers and staff who support the protest stay home.
California became the first state to mandate vaccinations or coronavirus testing for eligible children to attend in-person classes at public and private schools after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the requirement Oct. 1. Students who don’t comply will be required to do an independent study. There are medical and personal belief exemptions.
Teachers and staff are also required to get the vaccine or submit to testing.
The mandate currently affects students in grades 7-12. Those age 12 and older are eligible for the vaccine.
"Parents and concerned citizens all over CA are taking action against the forced COVID-19 vaccine mandate for our children in state schools. We demand parental choice over the bodily autonomy of our children," a Twitter flyer said, according to the Patch.
Oak Run Elementary in Shasta County plans to cancel classes Monday because of the protest, KRCR-TVCR in Redding, California, reported.
"Parents, educators, and students across the U.S. will engage in peaceful noncompliance activities to remind government officials that individuals should have the final say when it comes to their health," a letter from the school to families reportedly said.
Residents against the mandate held a rally in Redding on Friday, holding up signs with slogans such as "My body, my choice," "Teach freedom," "Stop the mandate" and "Support parents choice."

God bless these parents and teachers!
Thanks for the ping.
Call the FBI!!!
Just one day or until the mandate is rescinded?
And this is in —California—
(And the media covered it, so free advertising...)
Two can play that game.
The Resistance is growing by the day.
I think for k-12...commiefornia spends about 55 bucks per student per day. So if 100 000 students dont show up..the district will lose that money thats about 5.5 million lost to school districts per day. Could be enough to break the back of the districts...if boycott is done 10-20 times per year....just 2 times a month...
I believe the best solution is home school.with professional credentialed instructors HELPING (not mandating) design curriculum and proctor exams..and organize sports...theater....band...and have special venues for big techno stuff..like auto shop...trades....computer labs.people who do homeschooling should be exempt from school taxes.
I’ll be there!
The side that plays for KEEPS wins.
“The Resistance is growing by the day.”
It’s about time!
Newsom’s daughter remains unvaxxed to this day
Set up for the Big Fail ?
Showed to my wife who is a school teacher in California.
She’d be interested in knowing what the date this is supposed to happen ???
Fox news is as lame as the California GOPee
Well planned out... Her other conservative teacher friends don’t know about it either.
First line of excerpt/post: "California parents and teachers who oppose school vaccine mandates are planning a statewide walkout Monday, according to reports."
