DAUPHIN, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania school district says a fifth-grader’s face paint marking the death of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden is too disruptive for class.

Connor Tressler’s face paint showed a flag, the date of bin Laden’s death and the letters U-S-A.

The artwork drew the attention of administrators at Middle Paxton Elementary School near Harrisburg on Monday.

Central Dauphin School District spokeswoman Shannon Leib says the paint violates a requirement that student dress be “conducive to a scholastic atmosphere.”

She says the boy’s mother decided to remove him from school for the day.
