Cutting a hole in the mask will defeat the entire purpose of wearing the mask. Just pull it down to the chin and replace it when done playing.
And finally - ask for more space. Your "core" teachers likely aren't teaching with 2-3 feet between kids - ask if you can have class in the auditorium or in a gym, if not a spare classroom. Even a double portable would be better.
