Hannah Watters, a sophomore at North Paulding High School, was suspended last week after a picture she posted to twitter went viral that displays a crowded hallway inside of her school with only a few students wearing mask.
The photo instantly began to make thousands question the manner of which schools are opening and also challenge how they intend to actually keep students and staff protected from contracting the Coronavirus that has so viciously swept the entire world infecting millions and claiming hundreds of thousands of lives.
According to Hannah they were suspending her for allegedly violating several parts of the code of conduct which included using a cell phone during school hours, using social media during school hours, and violating student privacy by photographing them.
Those claims were refuted by Hannah’s mother, Lynn Watters, she pointed out that her daughter posted the photo after school hours and that they are in fact allowed to use their cellular devices during class.
Hannah relayed to CNN that she was concerned for the safety of everyone in that building and everyone in the county because precautions that the CDC and guidelines that the CDC has been telling us for months now, weren’t being followed.
She also stated, “I’d like to say this is some good and necessary trouble. My biggest concern is not only about me being safe, it’s about everyone being safe because behind every teacher, student and staff member there is a family, there are friends, and I would just want to keep everyone safe.”
Hannah’s mother reported that on Friday she spoke with the schools principal and she informed her that Hannah would not be suspended and that a suspension would not be placed on her record.
