According to an email from the Head of School at Horace Mann School in New York City, if students incorrectly use their face mask on school grounds, they will be suspended without access to virtual learning choices.
According to an email as well from Head of School Thomas Kelly, school pupils in the “Middle and Upper Division” of the private school would be “sent home without access to remote classroom teaching for the period at least of a two-day suspension” if they require “prompting to wear a mask.”
The email explicitly stated that punishments for failing to properly wear a face-covering could include students’ ability to participate in “co-curricular and interscholastic activities and events.” Kelly clearly stated that there are no students at Horace Mann who struggle to understand “the need to consistently wear one’s mask over their mouth and nose.”
“There will be no disputing the fact whether a prompt was given once, twice, or three times if you use this method.”
