A Long Island parent called the cops after their child and five other middle school students were pulled out of class for not wearing masks, police said Friday.
The six students at Islip Middle School were moved to the gym by a security guard Thursday over their non-compliance with the mask rule, according to Suffolk County Police.
A police spokesperson told The Post officers “took a report” — but that the situation was “not really a police issue.”
The school district did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday evening, but Islip Superintendent Dennis O’Hara has said that students who refuse to wear a mask will face consequences.
“As discussed with our community previously, any district student who does not adhere to the mask mandate will be brought to an alternative location where students are advised to either put on a mask or wait for their parent/guardian to pick them up,” O’Hara told ABC7.
The New York State Department of Health announced last week that all public and private school students and faculty members would be required to wear masks indoors.
