This is behavior that definitely requires a response of some sort. When I was a full-time classroom teacher, I would have contacted the child's case manager. In my school, that person works with the child (if they are on an IEP or 504 plan) regularly. Failing that for any reason, I would contact their guidance counselor. I think it is fine if you left a note for the teacher, but also contacted the AP. Just so someone who knows the kid and/or is charged with student well-being hears about it that very day.

It could be "nothing"...or it could be very significant. Without knowing the kid, you have no way to know. So reporting it was the right thing to do.

Personally, I would have been similarly matter-of-fact with the kiddo in class, and just redirected him. But I definitely would have reported it, too.
