Parents rally to support decision to discipline boy at Loveland school
LOVELAND, Colo. — Parents held a rally outside their kids’ elementary school in Loveland Thursday, to show support of the school’s decision to discipline a 7-year-old boy.
In a story first reported on FOX31 Denver News, the boy’s mother said he was suspended at Mary Blair Elementary School for throwing an imaginary grenade while playing an imaginary game of saving the world.
“To tell the side of the story from the person who can speak and tie the hands of the people who can’t, and then rush to judgment really seemed unfair,” says parent Denise Montague.
Officials have said the boy’s suspension lasted two hours inside the school, and he was never removed from the school or suspended from attending it.
