SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. -

An autistic student who was suspended for bringing a drawing of a bomb to school and telling classmates he had a bomb is being allowed to return to class, according to his mother. But the school district says the mother isn’t telling the whole story.

Amy Parham says her son, 13-year-old Rhett Parham, had his suspension from Hillcrest Middle School in Simpsonville revoked at a hearing Wednesday. She also says his absences have been excused.

But in a statement from the district, officials there say Amy Parham is giving “incomplete and inaccurate information,” following the manifestation hearing.

“School districts are prohibited by law from releasing specific student discipline information without parental permission,” the release stated. “The district prefers full disclosure of the incident, but the mother has refused our request to allow details about the incident to be released,” it continued.

Rhett Parham was suspended from school on Monday for telling people he had a bomb while showing them a drawing based on a video game, according to Amy Parham.
