An elementary school student in Georgia recently was suspended for bringing a plastic toy gun to school for a class assignment.
The class assignment was reportedly for the kids to bring in their favorite toys and talk about them.
Fourth grade student Ramsey McDonald, who attends Miller Elementary School, thought that showing the toy to his classmates would be a fun idea for the assignment, according to wfmynews.com.
Ramsey’s father, Scott McDonald, said that the assignment seemed fine to him.
"They were trying to get the kids to know each other," McDonald said.
Ramsey reportedly told his dad that he was going to show his classmates his iPad and several other toys he liked.
McDonald said he told his that was “ok” because he did not know that his child would bring in the plastic Nerf gun.
On Tuesday, McDonald got a call from school officials.
"They told me my son brought a weapon to school and they asked me if I was aware," McDonald said. "I asked them what it was and they said it was a plastic Nerf gun."
If he had known that Ramsey was planning to bring the Nerf gun, McDonald said he would have told his son not to.
Now, Ramsey is suspended for three days because of the incident.
