Kindergartners forced to eat lunch outside in the cold to stop the spread of COVID

"Governor Brown maskless in DC this weekend was the last straw. We've been patient with all of the policies here in Portland in hopes of not being ostracized within the community, but this is the last straw."

Elementary school students in Portland, Oregon were filmed eating lunch outside, socially distanced in cold temperatures, allegedly to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

A shocking video sent to The Post Millennial on Wednesday showed Kindergarten students at Capitol Hill Elementary School eating lunch outside in 40 degree weather while sitting on buckets to social distance.

One of the students' parents at Capitol Hill Elementary School told The Post Millennial that forcing their children to eat outside was their "final straw" with Portland Public Schools.

"As a parent of a student at Capitol Hill Elementary, this policy is abhorrent," the parent told The Post Millennial.

"I am beyond furious, especially knowing children are low-risk," they continued. "Governor Brown maskless in DC this weekend was the last straw. We've been patient with all of the policies here in Portland in hopes of not being ostracized within the community, but this is the last straw."

"I will be picking my child up to have lunch at home," they added.

The Post Millennial reached out to Portland Public Schools for comment but have not yet heard back.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is made available.
