(KOMONEWS) — EDMONDS, Wash. — A number of Edmonds school kids were recently suspended for having Nerf guns at school.

That’s not surprising considering the school’s “zero tolerance” policy on toy guns, but what is surprising is that the teacher allegedly told the kids it was okay to have the guns.

Now the kids’ parents want to know why their children were punished if the teacher gave permission for the guns.

The incident happened last Friday before class at Chase Lake Elementary School.

A sixth grade boy brought a number of the guns, which shoot small foam projectiles, to school for a class probability project. The kids were going to shoot the guns 100 times to see what happens.
