Colorado boy, age 7, suspended over ‘imaginary grenade’ on playground game

While playing a game of ‘rescue the world,’ Alex Evans tossed an imaginary grenade into a box. Because of the school’s ‘no real or play fighting’ rule, the boy was kicked out of school for an undisclosed period of time.

The family of Evans, a second-grade student at Mary Blair Elementary School in Loveland, learned the 7-year-old was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade during recess.

Alex Evans pretend grenade game school“Honestly I don’t think the rule is very realistic for kids this age,” Evans’ mother,Mandie Watkins, told KDVR, referring to the kids’ rule.

“I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended,” said Alex Evans who mispronounces his punishment while discussing his pretend grenade game.

Evans told KDVR-TV that he was merely playing a game during recess at the school, which is about an hour north of Denver, when he threw an imaginary grenade into a box that contained make-believe evil forces.

The school’s principal, Valerie Lara-Black, reportedly called Watkins Friday afternoon to inform her of Evans’ suspension, confirming that the second-grader did not have anything in his hand at the time, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald.

Under Thompson School District policy, school officials cannot comment on individual cases involving disciplinary issues.
