#3 The students who posted pictures got suspended for 'violating student code of conduct'

“Day two at North Paulding High School,” tweeted another 15-year-old student from the school in Georgia. “It is just as bad. We were stopped because it was jammed. We are close enough to the point where I got pushed multiple to go to the second block. This is not ok. Not to mention the 10% mask rate.”

Hannah says that after the picture went viral on social media, she was called in the student office and was informed that she has violated the student code of conduct. According to the school, Hannah broke policies of using a phone in the hallway without permission, using her phone for social media, and posting pictures of minors without consent.

#4 One of the students also took a tally of how many people in her classes were wearing masks

On Wednesday, Freeyourmindkid tweeted that he was “informed that the student who took these pictures from inside the school has been suspended.” The same day, the Twitter user posted: “If you are a student and you see that your school isn’t enforcing social distancing and masks, then please take pictures and post them to social media. If you are scared to post under your account, then reach out to me and I will post them anonymously.”

She posted the tally on her Twitter page, too. Apparently, in every class, less than half the students wore face masks. Hannah told the media that she wore hers all day with the exception of lunch. “Not only did [the schools] open, but they have not been safe,” the student said talking to Buzzfeed news. “Many people are not following CDC guidelines because the county did not make these precautions mandatory.”

“I think my punishment’s severity was excessive, but I do understand that I violated a code of conduct policy,” Hannah told the media talking about her punishment. “We have a progressive discipline system. When disciplining me and the other student, they skipped level one and went straight to two.”
