A north suburban middle school student will not be expelled after setting off tiny noisemakers called Pop-Its on a school bus.

She and four other students from John T Magee Middle School in Round Lake have been suspended for their actions. The girl is accused of bringing the Pop-Its on the bus two weeks ago and sharing them with the other students.

The suspensions end Thursday.
