Elementary school students in Fairfax County, Va., were forced to sit outside on cold concrete in the 24 degree weather on Tuesday as a reprieve from mask-wearing.

Photo and video obtained by the Fairfax County Parents Association purports to show a group of Waynewood Elementary students bundled up and enduring the below-freezing temperatures while being read to. 

FCPA told National Review the footage was taken by a concerned Waynewood parent who came upon the scene.

“It’s well below freezing in Fairfax County, yet young children are having story time on the cold concrete outside at @waynewoodes,” FCPA tweeted. “This is the result of poor leadership and confusing guidance to teachers. Get these little ones inside!”
