I notice on my PC at home and my phone so it funny it doesnt work at school.

I am also trying to figure out how a firewall could deny comic sans...

The font is being downloaded from another website, and that site is likely blocked.

Well then you probably should report this because that shows that it’s a mistake.

Well, it's not the font that's blocked, but alternate distributions of it, which honestly I find perfectly fair

If you think I'm wrong, correct me. If I've offended you in some way tell me what it is and how I can correct it. I want to learn, and along the way one can make mistakes; Being wrong helps you learn what's right.

Not every site is going to use the same distribution of the font. If one distribution allows it, then the others should be allowed too.

That doesn't make it right! The kids in these schools will determine the future of the country one day, so we better make sure that our schools are good, right?

Last I checked a font wasn't an addon. It's a core part of the system that has absolutely no reason to be blocked.

Extra fonts that you put into a system is a add-on.

But that still doesn’t make it right.

Comic Sans has been around for longer than a good chunk of the people on this site at this point. HTML has to load it externally because it doesn’t contain the functionality to do that built in. Using the that logic, you could say that using code at all on an HTML page is an add on.

We have to load the font from the web rather than your computer because Comic Sans MS is owned by Microsoft (hence the MS) and is therefore not installed by default on all other operating systems (it may be on some non-MS platforms, but not all). If we relied on a built-in font, it would not be blocked here - that's why the fallback font works fine.
