Georgia schools have begun to reopen. North Paulding High School started this week and while there were some precautions in place, pictures from students tell a crowded story. Two students have been suspended from North Paulding High School after showing packed hallways, with the minority sporting face coverings. Brian Otott, the superintendent of the school faced backlash after the photos vent viral, but he says that the photos are taken out of context as mask usage in the school is a “personal choice.”  The two students were suspended for “violating the student handbook.” The handbook states that students may not record or take photographs during school without the permission of faculty.
