A Mascoutah Middle School student was given 2 days detention for hugging. Breaking the No-PDA rule, the goodbye hug Megan Coulter, 13,  bestowed on two of her friends earned her a day each. District Superintendent Sam McGowen feels the punishment is fitting, as per student handbook:

“Displays of affection should not occur on the school campus at any time. It is in poor taste, reflects poor judgment, and brings discredit to the school and to the persons involved.”

Gravity of punishment depends according to the number of arms used (i.e. one-arm hug, bear hug), torque exerted on hugee, and whether hugger’s eyes were open or closed at the time of the act.
