A DMK Production
You are the assistant principal at the local middle school. You are responsible for disciplinary issues. You have several options available to you: warnings, detentions, ISS, lunch detention, lines and essays, privilege revocation, out of school suspension and CP. You may give up to a maximum of four swats with a paddle as long as a signed waiver from a parent is on file.
Your school building is currently undergoing a much needed expansion that will add ten new classrooms and a new library. The contractor has fenced the construction area off and posted signs warning unauthorized persons to keep out. Students are specifically forbidden from entering the construction area and such has been communicated to all students and parents in writing as well as weekly reminders during morning announcements. This is considered a serious offense and a safety violation. No one has ever tested this rule until today.
Today, three students who are best friends and siblings have been brought to you. You have the twelve year-old seventh grader Adam Swanson and his brother the thirteen year old eight grader Aaron Swanson and their best friend the thirteen year old eight grader Tyler Jones

The trio were caught by a teacher sneaking through a hole in the fence to go in to the construction area. The boys had left the cafeteria during lunch period (another rule violation) to satisfy their curiosity. The construction crew was off and so there was no active work going on at the site. None of the boys have ever been in trouble with you before. The boys all say they just wanted to look and they do not think it is a big deal because no one was working and none of them got hurt.
The Swanson boys' parents have signed the CP waiver but Tyler's have not.
How do you deal with these boys?
