Maryland District Bans Homemade Treats, Hugs


USA Today (3/19, Winter) reports, "Seeking to heighten safety," the school district in St. Mary's County, Maryland, "has banned homemade treats for classes, banished birthday invitations and prohibited parents and volunteers from hugging or touching children who aren't their own. ... The 'best practices' were drafted by a committee of parents and administrators last fall and implemented after the Newtown, Conn., massacre in December, Southern Maryland Newspapers reported Friday."
