School mask mandates have some Guilderland parents so upset, they've filed a lawsuit in federal court.

This lawsuit is 30 pages long. It lists several reasons why parents say mask mandates in schools shouldn't be allowed.

The parents say some of their kids have experienced physical symptoms from the masks, like headaches and anxiety.

Other parents say their children have learning disabilities, so not being able to see mouths or facial expressions is challenging.

Further, the lawsuit claims masks do not help stop the spread of COVID-19. Health experts say otherwise.
