HOLT, Mich. — An honor student who wore a knife to his prom as part of a Scottish outfit avoided possible suspension by agreeing not to return to his high school for a semester, school officials announced Tuesday.
Under an agreement with the school, Jeremy Hix, 16, will take college classes until he is allowed to return for the second half of the school year.
"I feel that this was the best option that was presented to us," Hix said. "Expulsion won't be on my record, so I won't have anything to explain."
He will be allowed to attend school functions, including dances and sports events, during the semester he does not attend. Hix also agreed not to keep any weapons, including the knife.
