Hugging Outlawed in Illinois School

Apparently hugging your friends goodbye for the weekend is a punishable offense in some schools.

MASCOUTAH, Ill. – Maybe they hugged it out: school officials resolved their dispute with the parents of a 13-year-old girl given detention for hugging her friends.

Melissa and Dean Coulter met with officials of the Mascoutah School District 19 to discuss the two detentions given their daughter, Megan, for hugging friends goodbye for the weekend. School officials said the eighth grader violated a policy banning public displays of affection.
