ATLANTA AP — A Georgia high school student said her five-day suspension for sharing images of crowded conditions on campus was lifted on Friday after she appealed and said she was ready to take her case to court. District spokesperson Jay Dillon declined comment. Waters, a year-old sophomore, posted the images on Tuesday showing crowded hallways at the 2,student North Paulding High School in Dallas, northwest of Atlanta. Multiple football players at North Paulding tested positive last week, underlining the likelihood that their contacts could be spreading infections once on-campus instruction began Monday.

At least two North Paulding High School students who shared images of their jam-packed hallway full of their mostly maskless peers have been suspended, and the principal has warned other students about what could happen if they do the same. The images, which showed a sea of teens clustered close together with no face coverings, raised concerns over how the district is handling reopening schools during a global pandemic. This is what it looks like even with split dismissal. Hannah Watters, 15, wore a mask as she captured the inside of her school. The rules bar students from using social media during the day or using recording devices without permission from an administrator. But she also viewed her punishment as overly harsh.

CNN The treatment Hannah Watters has received since she highlighted the lack of social distancing at the recently-reopened North Paulding High School by posting a now-viral photo of its hallways crowded with many unmasked students has been -- from an outside perspective -- incredible.
CNN As scores of American children return to classrooms under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, free speech experts have bristled at the sight of a public school punishing a student for practicing her right to free speech by sharing a photo of classmates not wearing masks and not social distancing on campus. This issue became a flashpoint this week after sophomore Hannah Watters was disciplined for posting a photo on Twitter showing many of her fellow North Paulding High School classmates in Dallas, Georgia not wearing masks while walking down a crowded hallway. The photo was posted on Twitter at the end of dismissal, Hannah said.
