Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Colorado middle school launches probe after teen says teacher TAPED masks to students’ faces in class”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Colorado Springs’ Academy School District 20 said it would conduct a probe over allegations that some staff at Chinook Trail Middle School had taped masks to students’ faces, according to a local media report. The charge originated after photos emerged online showing one female student with a taped-on mask, who has since identified herself as ‘Rylee M.’ Both she and her mother were featured in posts by conservative activist Michelle Malkin, helping the story garner attention on social media. 

“Forcing kids to tape masks to their faces is CHILD ABUSE. It's happening in my backyard in Colorado Springs, according to one family,” Malkin wrote. “I spoke this morning with Stephanie M., mother of Rylee, a 6th grader at Chinook Trail Middle School.”

Stephanie rushed to Chinook Trail Middle School after her daughter texted her that a teacher gave her a warning and handed her blue painter's tape to seal the mask to her face. Rylee told her that at least 1 other student was also directed to do the same.

In an audio clip circulating online, Rylee said she had been warned that she was not wearing her mask properly prior to the tape incident, and that she was given the option to apply the tape herself, or to simply “learn” to wear her mask as directed. Asked what might happen if a student declined to wear the tape, the girl said she did not know, as nobody had attempted to refuse.
