Just Plain Stupid

Read this (I’ve put the blanks in):

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – An eighth-grade honors student who was suspended for a day, barred from attending an honors dinner and stripped of his title as class vice president after he was caught with ____________ in school will get his student council post back, school officials said.

Superintendent Reginald Mayo said in a statement late Wednesday that he and principal Eleanor Turner met with student Michael Sheridan’s parents and that Turner decided to clear the boy’s record and restore him to his post.

Michael was disciplined after he was caught buying _____________ from a classmate. The classmate’s suspension also will be expunged, school officials said.

The New Haven school system banned ________ in 2003 as part of a districtwide school ________ policy, school spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo said.

“I am sorry this has happened,” Turner said in a statement. “My hope is that we can get back to the normal school routine, especially since we are in the middle of taking the Connecticut mastery test.”

Turner said she should have reinforced in writing the verbal warnings against _______ transactions.

Michael had said that he didn’t realize his _____________ was against the rules, but he did notice that the student selling the _________ on Feb. 26 was being secretive.

The horrible offense? He bought a BAG OF SKITTLES from the classmate.

Skittles. The sale of candy was banned as part of a “wellness” policy. So now you have kids sneaking around as though they were drug dealers. They actually referred to is “contraband candy.”

This kind of nonsense reminds of that scene from ‘Band of Brothers’ where that idiot Sobel (played great by David Schwimmer) is going through everybody’s foot lockers:
