A growing number of Americans don’t want 5G and/or 4G cell towers and antennas of any size near their homes or their children’s schools due to health and safety risks (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17). Earlier this month, parents in Wyandotte, MI were NOT happy to learn that a 5G antenna would be installed on their elementary school’s rooftop. Despite their concerns and opposition, the superintendent says it would cost too much to break the contract.

School Tells Parents It Would Cost Millions to Cancel Tower Contract
UPDATE A meeting between parents and school board members in Wyandotte, MI two weeks ago, resulted in police being called to break up the session. Parents aggressively voiced their concerns over a rooftop antenna placed at their children’s elementary school. On Monday, a letter issued by Wyandotte Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Catherine Cost said breaking the contract with T-Mobile would cost “millions of dollars,” according to WXYZ-TV.
“The District would be sued by T-Mobile, and our insurance will not cover this. Based on the signed contract, our legal counsel has said we would be responsible for paying T-Mobile for damages, attorney fees, and court costs, which could be in the millions of dollars,” she wrote. “These fees would come out of the general fund. That is why this impacts every family and every staff member, as there would be less available to the remaining classrooms and staff members.”
Cost said T-Mobile expressed no interest in relocating the antennas. She said an independent organization, Site Safe, conducted a safety report on the tower and provided the Board a model of the school along with RF measurements. “Due to the reduction levels discussed, the exposure levels on the school building rooftop, within the school building, and at any areas at ground level, including all of the school property grounds and playground, is well below the FCC’s accepted General Public MPE Limit,” the SiteSafe report said.
“These were all well, well below the legal limits, and would not cause harm to children,” Cost said in her letter.
The board planned to hold another public meeting last night with a T-Mobile representative on site. The district is also giving parents and staff the option to transfer out of the school, WXYZ-TV reported.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans from the telecom industry; however it has a long history of catering to the industry instead (see 1, 2). In 2021, a federal court ruled in favor of petitioners who sued the agency for NOT updating wireless radiation guidelines – including 5G –since 1996 despite scientific evidence submitted to it. In 2022, one of the petitioners announced it was seeking Americans who have been injured by cell tower exposure to be plaintiffs in lawsuits.
