BROKEN BOW, Okla (KOKH) — Students in Broken Bow will now either have to call their parents or pay the school if they forget their masks at home.
Rector Johnson Middle School and Broken Bow High School posted on Facebook Monday letting parents know if their student comes to school without a mask, they could have to pay $1.
RJMS said their students attend several classes in which they must wear a mask which was approved by the school board several months ago.
Since then, the school has been issuing reusable masks to students but now their resources have been depleted.
One teacher at the high school said the school had been going through approximately 100 reusable masks a day.
It has also been reported that students were taking the masks and throwing them in the trash after school.
The school is now selling masks for $1 to students who forget their masks at home.
If the student does not have $1 they will be asked to call their parents to bring them either a mask or $1.
Parents are being asked to remind their children every morning to bring their masks to school.
