My son took a Mucinex to school yesterday. He had it in his backback because his nose has been severly congested. Long story short, the school found out about it and searched him, his locker and his backback. He is now suspended for 3 days because they have a no tolerance policy against drugs in their schools. I understand what he did was violation of this policy. You are not allowed to have any medication at school without a note and it must go to the nurse's office. But this is a good kid, who is never in trouble. 3 days out of school for one pill? Then I find out today that there was a kid distrubuting pills to other students yesterday and they had to send them to the hospital because they were severly sick. Is this kid suspended. No he's in school today. Go figure. do you think this was a harsh punishment for this action? I belive to give him a detension or something but not a 3 day suspension. And he came home with a letter from the school saying that they are having a hearing on Friday to see if he needs additonal time being suspended. They are so out of line. When I talk to the school all I hear about is that he was in violation of the policy. What would you do? I'm fighting all the way for my son. I think this is riduculous and so does his father.
