According to the Central Dauphin School District, students are not permitted to wear face paint or masks at outdoor sporting events within the district.
Officials say students may wear paint on arms, legs and shirts.
The new rule addresses safety and security issues at sporting events. CDSD says district staff must be able to clearly identify students and when their faces are obstructed it is difficult to do.
CDSD released a statement about this on their website: cdschools.org under the News and Events tab.
