March 25, 2012 by staff 

Hugging Ban, A New Jersey middle school has banned its students from hugging in class. Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School’s principal Tyler Blackmore has branded the the school as a “no-hugging” zone.

District officials had determined that the school’s 900-plus students were engaging in “unsuitable, physical interactions”.

Superintendent David M Healy said that specific incidents had violated school policies, leading to the ban.

“We have a responsibility to teach children about appropriate interactions and about having a structured, academically focused environment,” he said.

“I have confidence in Mr Blackmore and his administrative team and believe that he acted in a responsible manner.”

Parent Tammy Sabatini told CBS News that she was amazed to hear that students are not able to be affectionate on school grounds.
