Hatch said she and many other parents have contacted local and state education and public health officials, and even the governor’s office to ask how to go about getting the mask requirement out of local schools, only to be directed to other agencies and never getting a direct answer.

Parents, students, and whomever else is interested can ask questions and seek answers from local officials in the matter.
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 6:30 in the pavilion next to the pool in Buffalo’s Washington Park.
