The principal of Theuerkauf Elementary School in Mountain View, California, called police to remove a 4-year-old boy because he refused to wear a mask.
It was his first day of school and the boy, who may also have learning difficulties, was already inconsolable when teachers asked him to put on a mask, the Daily Mail reports.
When his dad showed up, the principal ordered him to leave the school grounds under threat he would be removed if he didn’t leave. The police then escorted the boy off the school premises.
Theuerkauf Elementary School is one of only a handful of schools mandating masks in California. It changed its policy the next day.
As one blogger noted: “It’s the people in charge who are the children.”
