standard “Bucky Balls” Dangers

Many students are bringing “Bucky Balls” to school.  Bucky Balls are groups of tiny little bb sized magnets, and they’re tons of fun.  BUT, they are very dangerous if swallowed.  One isn’t an issue, but with two or more, they get attracted to each other and can do damage. Some students apparently enjoy putting one on the inside of their mouths and one on the outside, to simulate a cheek piercing.  So be aware, and please don’t let children bring them to school!
