Keep your hugs to yourself.

Giving a hug is against school rules.

The school tightened its grip on the public displays of affection after students started showing up late to class because they were busy hugging each other and clogging the hallways.

Twelve year-old Desah Eaves sent a letter to the school board protesting the rule. Eaves says in addition to hugging, high-fives and hand-shakes are also banned.
