Mid-Del parent Lydia Fox said Tuesday her 7-year-old son was suspended Friday for fidgeting in class.Fox said her son, Patrick Riley, who is in first grade at Parkview Elementary, was asked to go home after he formed a gun with his hand and started to pretend he was shooting at a wall.School leaders said Riley was misbehaving during the assembly."Him (Riley) and a little girl were just getting bored at an assembly and doing some target practice at the wall," Fox said.Parkview Elementary said in an official statement that "a student has repeatedly used his hands to simulate a gun and act as if is shooting fellow students."However, Riley said he did not point his make-believe gun at anyone.
Fox said she was outraged at the reason why her son was suspended."One of the things I've always been able to brag about Oklahoma is that common sense still rules here. Unfortunately, I don't think I can say that anymore," Fox said.Fox said she met with the school principal on Tuesday. She said they decided to "agree to disagree” on the matter.Parkview Elementary said Riley was not suspended anymore.KOCO
