Pasco first-grader suspended for talking about Nerf guns
The Pasco School District decided to overturn the suspension of a first-grader who was sent home for talking about toy guns.
The district determined no discipline was warranted after talking with the parents.
The father, Mike Aguirre, told the Tri-City Herald his son Noah was punished for talking about Nerf guns and there's no evidence he threatened to harm another student.
The 6-year-old was suspended Feb. 28 at James McGee Elementary School. The district said Wednesday the incident will be erased from his record.
