The presiding official swore us in and read the charges. Laura took a deep breath and like a real Lytle said she made a conscious decision to not make such a bad decision again.
Laura was offered the opportunity to join Drug Fee Clubs of America, which I've mentioned before. Their "out" to drugs is "No thanks, I'll be tested." Laura rejoined with a no, she would be expelled.
They were impressed she had completed her 24 hours of diversion. As I've said, the Food Bank is twenty minutes away and she had a week off. She was reinstated as of tomorrow morning, and told to report to a counselor for some Wednesday morning duties.
I thanked them for reinstating her two days early. I said it had been quite a shock to both of us; she had missed far too much school, and I had every confidence in Laura's good sense we would not be repeating the episode.
The officials said they would work closely with her to make up her work and the end of quarter exams she missed. Thank you's and good-byes around and we left.
