DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- A Dyer County High School student was sent to the principal's office on Monday morning after saying "bless you" to another student who sneezed.
   
Seventeen-year-old Kendra Turner told the State Gazette the phrase was on a list of things students were not allowed to say in that class, including "my bad," "hang out," "dumb," "stupid" and "stuff."

Assistant Principal Lynn Garner on Tuesday said she could not discuss the specifics of what happened, but she said there are "two sides to every story."

Garner also said teachers can set their own classroom rules as long as they are reasonable.

Turner said she was sent to the principal's office after an exchange with the teacher and was placed in in-school suspension for the remainder of that period.
