Doing a grammar police thingy here:

I will be very upset and angry if kids in my grandchildren's schools are allowed to go without masks--beings how none can get vaxxed as these are elementary schools. Don't let the stupids make policy!

Not "beings." "Being as" = "since," or "inasmuch as" or "because."

I understand that "being as" SOUNDS LIKE "beings," but the "beings" is simply wrong. "Beings" is a plural noun meaning "multiple living things."
