A DMK Bonus Production
Last year your now twelve year old son, Nate, clashed terribly with a substitute teacher.
This year Nate realized the same substitute was covering his third period class. Nate decided to not go to class and he instead went to the library and sat down and started reading. The librarian questioned him as to why he was there. Nate explained he had a sub that period and she had said he could come to the library and read. (To clarify, Nate never talked to the substitute teacher.) The librarian knows and trusts Nate and so she never checked his story out. Nate was reported to the office as skipping by the sub.
After lunch Nate was called in to the office by the principal and asked to explain himself. Nate told all and was truthful about everything. Nate explained his past history with this sub which the principal is aware of. The principal decided to not "charge" Nate with skipping which would have meant Nate would have been given three licks. Instead he assigned Nate a detention. Nate asked if he could serve his detention today so the principal called you and explained the matter. You agreed with the detention for today and so Nate will spend an hour after school with the janitorial crew. You asked to speak to your son.
Nate seemed to understand why he was in trouble and he understood what he had done wrong and was accepting of the detention. He then asked, "Am I in trouble when I get home?"
