I’m Scared to Wear a Mask All Day in School

Dear Shayna,

School is starting again and I’m worried. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was thinking about having to wear a mask in school. How will I be able to sit in class all day with a mask on my face? I think it’ll be really uncomfortable. I’m scared I won’t be able to concentrate for so many hours while wearing a mask. What do you think?

Sincerely,
Fraidy Katz
 

Dear Fraidy Katz,

You don’t need to be afraid of wearing a mask at school, because if your classmates can, then so can you. Besides, you’ll probably get to take a break from wearing a mask anyway. Sooner or later you’ll get used to it. You should think of wearing a mask as a privilege to get to go to school at last. It’s a fabulous place where you can learn and make new friends and reunite with your old friends. Sure, wearing a mask is not ideal, but now you realize that school is a great place. So, if you’re doing things at school, you probably won’t even notice your mask. Relax and you’ll have a great time. Don’t you worry!

Best of luck,
Shayna B.
