I wanted to post and get some advice from those who may have faced a similar
situation in the past - I was made aware this week of an unfortunate
incident at a local elementary school. A scout (who was a Webelos in my Cub
Scout Pack a couple years back), took a pocket knife to school (not a phi
beta kappa move, but nonetheless, he did it). Unfortunately, the local
school district has a zero tolerance policy with regards to weapons. So,
long story short, when he displayed the pocket knife to others at recess,
school administration found out, and wham-o, instant EXPLUSION from school!
Have others out there ran into similair situations? What has the general
strategy been to minimize damage?
Thanks for all of your insight and suggestions.
