East Shore M.S. Outlaws “High-Fives,” “Hugging” And Horseplay Of Any Kind; Violators May Face Expulsion.
A Connecticut middle school principal has laid down the law: You put your hands on someone — anyone — in any way, you’re going to pay.
A violent incident that put one student in the hospital has officials at the Milford school implementing a “no touching” policy, according to a letter written by the school’s principal.
East Shore Middle School parents said the change came after a student was sent to the hospital after being struck in the groin.
Students and parents are outraged. They said the new policy means no high-fives and hugs, as well as horseplay of any kind. The consequences could be dire, Williams warned in the letter.
“Potential consequences and disciplinary action may include parent conferences, detention, suspension and/or a request for expulsion from school,” Williams wrote.
