Ok I can see this as being somewhat reasonable (and given this happened on Sept 11th I can even understand the extra concern) but the child told a teacher about it when he arrived at the school that morning! If he'd kept it hidden and the first sign anyone had about it was when it beeped in class maybe some extra scrutiny would have been in order. But as things played out, not so much.

ETA: oops read the story too quickly, Sept 11th was mentioned but it was not because this happened on that day!
