BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - As Boston Public School students head back into the classroom today, some parents are concerned about current Covid-19 policies in place.

Member of the group called "Families For Covid Safety", along with a coalition of a dozen other groups have now sent a letter to BPS, the Public Health Commission and Mayor's office. They say the shortfall comes down to vaccination requirements, masking, testing ventilation and exposure procedures.

In addition to requiring kids to mask for the first 10 days of the school year as a precaution, the group is also calling for weekly pooled testing and transparency.

While calling for a stronger mitigation, the group said Covid-19 continues to exact a high toll on the Boston community, causing hospitalizations, missed work and death.

The group also pointed to data from other cities and states where teachers have seen an increase in infections.
