Since then, you've randomly tested for tobacco use several times. While he's increased his use of mints and gum, he's managed to stop smoking (assuming that wasn't a one off - he never would tell you if it was, or how long he'd been smoking prior to that).
You know things have been tough on him, after his best friend moved away over the last summer, but you're not happy with his recent attitude, or with some of the new friends he's made. You're trying to pay attention to the friends he hangs out with, and you're trying to be sure he keeps up with his school work. You're not exactly happy, but you're feeling moderately hopeful and optimistic.
That's when you get another call from the school.
Kevin wasn't skipping class this time, but he was caught in an off-limits area, with four other boys. All four of the other boys were smoking - two of them weren't smoking cigarettes (not tobacco ones anyway). Looking at the grounds, it was obvious this wasn't the first time someone had made use of it for that purpose. That means they can't tell how many of what were burning at the time.
Kevin was not actually seen with anything. The other four boys are being ticketed. The two with marijuana cigarettes are being removed from school and sent to the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program. The two boys who had tobacco will be doing three days in ISS.
They're not sure what to do with Kevin. They school doesn't have a drug testing policy, but they're offering you the chance to have him tested. If he's clear, he'll just be given detention for being out of bounds.
You do have him tested, and he is clear on both marijuana and tobacco.
Is detention all he'll be getting?
