This whole thing is ridiculous. Waste of time and tax payer money. At worst, confiscate the toy and inform the parents. Schools can barely graduate students that can even take care of themselves after school. Be a school, not a parent, and hold bad parents accountable. Stop spreading fear and wasting my taxes. When I was in highschool, the cops only showed up for one particular person. Now, the schools act like the crappy neighbor who calls 911 every time the wind blows, plus have a cop on duty AT the school. This is ridiculous!
