Update: The 14 year old girl who make the threat to the school confessed. It was a joke to get the day off. She was then arrested and taken away from her school, her family and friends and put in juvenile hall. She was also expelled from the school.

It is sad. Very sad. PLEASE talk to your kids about consequences. Too many kids are clueless about the grave consequences of their actions. Even a small joke can turn serious and dangerous. A confession won’t get you a “get out of jail free” card. Tell your teens to THINK and remember cautionary tales such as this one. It is just sad and unfortunate all the way around. Wanting a day off from school ruined a life. It isn’t worth it.
