Beloit Take 3

A "masking incident" at a Beloit school has led to canceled classes Friday as school administrators say they fear for student safety amid a planned protest that might be disruptive.

BELOIT, Wis. — A “masking incident” at a Beloit school has led to canceled classes Friday as school administrators say they fear for student safety amid a planned protest that might be disruptive.

That incident was a joke and a challenge from the student to his special education teacher, multiple students and the teacher involved told police, according to records obtained by News 3 Investigates. When a student wasn’t wearing his mask properly after a McNeel Intermediate School teacher asked him to, she joked she’d have to “tape” the mask.
