Teachers Predict Hilarious Things They’ll Have to Say If Masks Are Required in School

Masks in school

There is a lot of debate around masks being worn in schools. While many teachers think it might be necessary, they know it’s going to cause a lot more headaches and distractions in the classroom. So we asked teachers on our Facebook page to predict a few things they think they’ll be saying every day in school next year (if masks are made mandatory for everyone), and the responses were pretty hilarious!

1. “Who said that?” *Classroom full of students with masks just look at each other with eyes of conspiracy*

2. “You cannot trade your mask with Johnny because his looks cool. You have to wear your own mask…all day…every day..No! You can’t sell him your mask!”

3. “You shouldn’t try to drink through your mask.”

4. “It’s not an eye mask.”

5. “No, you can’t share your mask.”

6. “No, you can’t pour snacks in your mask and ‘eat like a horse’ during class!”

7. “Masks are not slingshots!”

8. “Are you vaping under your mask?” (at the high school level)

9. “No, you can’t use your mask as a Kleenex!”

27. “No, you are not a pirate and your mask is not an eye patch!”

28. “Your mask is not underwear! Take it off your butt and put it over your mouth and nose right now!”

29. “You’re not keeping germs OUT of your nose and mouth if your finger is making its way IN…”

30. “Did you just laugh at me? Who is laughing right now?”

31. “Your mask is not a necklace or a bracelet, put it on your face!”

32. “No, just because you wear a mask does not mean you don’t have to brush your teeth.”
