I think people would feel differently if this was about a cell phone! As long as it isn't dangerous, students have the right to get their belongings back at some point. I think there should be steps like the following: 1. Get it from the office at the end of the day 2. Give it to the office and have a parent pick it up at the end of the week 3. Parent can pick it up at the end of the year Honestly, I think that the majority of students would stop bringing their spinners after Step 2 (or even Step 1). However, taking it away forever is just not appropriate.
