What he did was dangerous, thankfully no one was hurt. And since no one was hurt, I don't understand why the punishment is so severe. I understand a littering fine, paying for restitution for any damages (if any) loss of bus priviliges, (even permanent) and maybe a 3 day suspension. But 30% loss of grade and 10 days out? Wow. Thats a bit harsh, unless the child is known to get into trouble. I don't see how the loss of grade is a relevant unless work wasn't made up. Maybe its quizzes they will receive 0's for? That I understand, b/c many teachers have policy's that if you miss the quiz day, you take a zero. (and there are enough quizzes each semester that missing one or two won't make you fail) Is this the first time your child has been suspended or gotten into any trouble?
