Butler student suspended for conducting body piercings

A George P. Butler High School student who conducted body piercings on campus and had a small amount of marijuana in her possession was suspended for the rest of the school year, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding recently made public.

The student was caught Nov. 4 and appeared before the tribunal Nov. 17. Because she is a special education student, this decision is subject to review by the special education team.

A Glenn Hills High School student was suspended for the rest of the school year after he was found in possession of marijuana Oct. 22. Three other students initially disciplined in connection with the incident were found by the tribunal not to have broken the Code of Student Conduct, so their days of suspension were returned and they were allowed to make up their school work.

A Sego Middle School pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year after he hit another pupil on the back and repeatedly threatened him Nov. 3. This decision also is subject to review by the special education team.

All three students were given the option to attend the Tubman Education Center alternative program in lieu of long-term suspension.
