    The op mentions "violating school policy" perhaps that would include bringing personal projects to school unannounced. More info needed.
    But then jumping to conclusions is all the exercise some of us ever get...

    This reminds me of another event that caused mass hysteria a few years back:



    Also the chorus for this song comes to mind as well:

    Parents and the kid certainly do not need counseling, over reactive hysteric people and substantial swaths of our populace however could use a bit of counseling.

    I voted for "The counselors need counseling for their delusions of grandeur" because I thought it was funny.

    But "The school officials who sound emotional and mentally unstable" is good too.

    Seriously, it does seem an overreaction, but then again...what if it HAD been a bomb...and a teacher dismissed it?

    It really shouldn't anymore, but it still astounds me that no one thought to just ask the kid what the hell it was.
