Suspension lifted for 5-year-old who brought toy gun to school

The Hopkinton kindergartner who was given a half-day suspension for bringing a toy gun to school had his punishment revoked Friday by the school superintendent, according to the 5-year-old boy’s mother, who had appealed the disciplinary measure.

“I thought what they were doing was pretty unreasonable,” said ­Christina Stone, whose son, Jonah, was issued the suspension after he showed the toy gun Wednesday to a friend at Hopkinton’s Center School. “He was pretty forlorn.”
