She says she was just trying to help a friend, but now two students from Monument face expulsion after one loaned another her asthma inhaler.What is insufficient about a sternly administered warning?
Alyssa McKinney thought her friend, Breana Crites, was having an asthma attack during gym class. It happened at Lewis-Palmer Middle School. Both Eighth-graders were suspended for 10 days.
The principal told CBS4 he couldn’t talk about the case but said it comes down to two students sharing prescription drugs, which is against school policy.
Maybe call the parents in to explain the situation and assure that other kids are informed of what can go wrong with good intentions.
You know, teach them. That is what schools are supposed to do, isn't it?
The principal sent a letter home to McKinney’s parents.Hey dude, it's called a sense of proportion. Get one.
“I’m extending the suspension for five more days … and recommending expulsion from the Lewis-Palmer School District,” the letter stated.
The attitude here couldn't be any worse if they were passing a bong.
