In a bizarre twist of the pandemic, a 12 year old straight-A student is threatened not with suspension, or some other form of school level punishment. Instead, for missing a matter of 3 thirty minute online Zoom sessions, he was threatened with arrest. Perhaps there’s more that I’m not seeing here, but 7th grade A student being arrested for skipping a trio of zoom classes seems highly excessive.
For a 12-year-old Stanley Middle School student, that could be the consequence, according to a letter the boy’s father received from the school principal.

And according to the seventh-grader’s father, Mark Mastrov, other Lafayette parents have received similar letters because their children allegedly missed Zoom time during their distance learning — a pandemic version of playing hooky.
