PENN HILLS (KDKA) ―
A Penn Hills Middle School student has been suspended for bringing an eyebrow trimmer to school.
Under the Safe School Act, the district says the instrument is a razor and is considered dangerous.
They suspended 15-year-old Taylor Ray-Jetter.
The instrument was taken from Taylor's purse at school by security guards. She told them it was harmless but they called it a weapon.
Taylor was immediately suspended and was expelled Wednesday.
The punishment has her worried about her future.
"I want to be an anesthesiologist –a nurse anesthetist and I feel like it's going to be on my record so it's going to dampen a lot of things I wanted to do for myself and I'm very upset," she said. "I did not come up there to hurt anybody."
Taylor is a member of the basketball team, 9-year Girl Scout, a youth usher, a member of the choir and leadership team, among other activities.
The superintendent says the tool is a weapon and Taylor's punishment is all apart of a very strict zero tolerance policy.
