“Appropriate steps were taken at the school level to insure the safety of all students and to impress upon the students the seriousness of engaging in positive peer interactions while avoiding conduct that may pose risk or concern to others. All children need to feel safe and secure within the learning environment and we all have a role to play to make that happen.”

The UK Daily Mail reported:

Earlier this year a 14-year-old in California was arrested for posting a photo of a Lego rifle on social media along with a threatening message.

In 2013 a five year old in Massachusetts was almost suspended after he made a gun out of Legos.

Exit question: Did the Legos come with a warning label?
