Vancouver resident Katie Bauer discusses procedures in the Vancouver School District to address COVID-19

It’s not just about the masks anymore for school children.
First it was the fear of spreading an illness that has a 99 percent recovery rate for children. Then it was the fear the children would spread the illness to the school staff. Then it was the fear that masks wouldn’t work well enough, so Anthony Fauci said wear two masks. Fear is the basis of our daily existence now.
Then along came PCR testing. For those that looked beyond mainstream media you may have seen information such as cycles being run too high and giving false positives (https://cormandrostenreview.com/report/)
This report was followed up by a reexamination:
“In case of virus detection, >35 cycles only detects signals which do not correlate with infectious virus as determined by isolation in cell culture [reviewed in 2]; if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the case in most laboratories in Europe & the US), the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%”
“In light of our re-examination of the test protocol to identify SARS-CoV-2 described in the Corman-Drosten paper we have identified concerning errors and inherent fallacies which render the SARS-CoV-2 PCR test useless.”
Vancouver Public Schools is now requiring PCR testing on all athletes (and perhaps choir and band members) twice a week who are unvaccinated. These healthy kids will be forced to have twice weekly tests even when they show no symptoms. The CDC admits that even vaccinated individuals can still get COVID-19 https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/health-departments/breakthrough-cases.html
They are called breakthrough cases. But it could also be called vaccine failure. Nothing is perfect, the article states. So then why can a school district reason that they will only be mandating testing twice a week for the unvaccinated kids? And what I find most irritating is that they are only going to announce to parents of VPS students on August 31, the first day of school. And how will they announce this?
Do parents also know that their kids will be required to scan QR codes so that they can be tracked of their daily whereabouts at school? The flu has caused more deaths in the US child population than COVID and yet masks, PCR testing and QR code tracking was never instituted. I really hope you are asking yourself why?
When the district office is contacted regarding PCR testing, the caller is told to contact their school directly. The most logical person to contact would be the school nurse. If a parent connects with the school nurse, he/she may state that they don’t know anything about PCR testing. This is true because the district has a COVID Team, and that team is apparently working directly with coaches to administer the PCR tests. One school nurse asked the parent calling to please find out what is going on because the district is not informing the school nurses about the PCR testing. I wonder why that is?
If you were not aware that Vancouver Public Schools was practicing medicine and even keeping their own school nurses in the dark, write to your school board, attend the next meeting. Call your school nurse and make sure what I’m writing is correct. (Not all school districts are doing this – I’m only aware of VPS).
Whether you agree with schools having testing and clinics on site or don’t agree, just make sure you are fully informed. And the only way to be fully informed is to ask questions. Do not rely on being fed information. Go above and beyond for your child and find out the details.
