5-Year-Old Cape Cod Student Could be Suspended for Making Lego Gun

A five-year-old Hyannis elementary school student could face suspension after making a lego gun during an after school program. What do you think? Does the punishment fit the crime?


The Hyannis West Elementary after school program sent a letter home to Joseph Cardosa’s parents last week explaining that Cardosa had used toys inappropriately during the program, according to FOX 25.

The letter also stated that if Cardosa received a second warning he would be suspended from the after school care program for two weeks.

Sheila Cruz, Joseph’s mother, told FOX 25 the warning is going too far and that redirection would have been sufficient.

We want to know what you think? Is the after school program being too sensitive or is the warning appropriate?
