On Wednesday the North Penn School District issued a statement, apologizing for a teacher who was caught on a photo taping a medical mask to a child’s face. It called her actions unacceptable.

An image taken in one of our classrooms last week and circulating on social media does not represent the universal values that the North Penn School District strives to instil in both our students and staff,’ the district commented in a statement obtained by The Philadelphia Inquirer.

An investigation showed that the incident was isolated and the teacher intended no harm, but her actions were entirely ’inappropriate’ and ’unacceptable,’ the school stated. The district also said it was addressing the issue with the teacher, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the school’s employee would be fired or face any disciplinary action.

The incident involving a teacher fixing a medical mask to a child’s face with masking tape took place on Monday at Pennfield Middle School in Hatfield, North Pennsylvania. The act was caught on a photo shared on social media by the group ’North Penn Stronger Together.’ 

‘Pro-mask or anti-mask, I hope we can all agree that taping masks to children’s faces crosses the line. This was not a joke for the child or the parents,’ read the Facebook post.

This issue caused an avalanche of hundreds of outraged comments calling for the teacher to get fired. The group appealed to the district to take action against such misconduct and invited community members to voice their opinion at a Thursday school board meeting. 

The student’s mother anonymously reached out to the media on Thursday, saying their family didn’t want any part of that. In an exclusive statement released to the local news outlet North Penn Now, she expressed concern that the situation has grown out of control and that she only wanted to share the photo with a local group to gain support before the board meeting.


The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has implemented even stricter mask rules for school children, now requiring students to wear surgical and other high-grade face coverings instead of more comfortable cloth masks.

The school district announced that, from Monday, ’masking will be required at all times, indoors and outdoors,’ and children will be required to wear ’well-fitting, non-cloth masks with a nose wire.’

Shannon Haber, a spokeswoman for the district, told the Los Angeles Times that though Covid-19 rates in schools had dropped, the district is ’continuing to be diligent and agile in creating the safest learning environment.’ Source 1, Source 2
