A DMK Production
You are the assistant principal at a private school. Part of your duties involve handling disciplinary issues. You have several options available to you up to and including CP. Your school allows students a mid-day break for lunch and free activities. Students are essentially allowed to free roam of the campus during the break. However, it is a strictly enforced policy that students no leave campus during the break unless signed out by a parent.
David White is a fourteen year-old eight grader. David is a good student ad athlete and is well-liked by both students and faculty alike. David has never been in any sort of trouble since he has been at your school which has been three years now.
David is caught up in Pokemon GO and, like other students, likes to hunt during mid-day break.
Today David got really involved in his hunt and inadvertently wandered off of school grounds and made it quite a distance before he realized the problem. David was significantly late returning to class because of his having wandered off of campus. His teacher referred him to you for the tardy. While discussing the issue with David he freely admitted as to why he had been tardy to class.
Usually for a significant tardy issue you would assign a detention or an essay. Leaving school grounds is usually addressed with three paddle swats.
What sort of action is David facing from you? Do his honesty and the circumstances mitigate his punishment any? Do you address this as one infraction, two, or not at all?
