A follow-up to Friday’s post about North Paulding High, which became famous nationally last week after two students snapped pics of kids packed cheek by jowl in the halls between periods as they moved to their next class. Both students were briefly suspended for violating rules against taking photos of people without permission, then un-suspended after school administrators were excoriated for retaliating against kiddie whistleblowers.
Today brings news that six students and three staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 — so far. Whether as-yet unknown infections are currently incubating among other people who were in the building last week is anyone’s guess, so the school is closed today and tomorrow as a precaution. As for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, they’re playing it by ear.
What a sh*tshow this country’s going to be this winter.
