If you're not familiar with them, they're only the hottest new 'toy' or gadget sweeping the nation. The Fidget Spinner takes advantage of our OCD tendencies and is making the inventors millions. And, apparently causing distractions in schools.

We saw a post on the Benton City Community Information Facebook page, from a woman named Bethany. Apparently school officials in the Ki-Be District have sent home flyers asking parents to have children keep these distractions at home. They come in a variety of colors and slight variations in design.

While they recognize the use of these devices for Autistic or diagnosed OCD people, they are generally discouraging their use unless it's deemed necessary. Have your kids seen any of these notices?
