sending an at-risk student home

I feel like my admin are afraid of getting sued and are tiptoeing around some of the students who are at-risk for hurting themselves and others.

My admin stated that we could consider calling the parents of a student who is clearly at-risk and, if the parents take the child home, then they parents then become liable. This scares me because what if the student goes through with the act, the parents can say "well, the school sent him home". I err on the side of caution and call in the police and have them determine whether or not the student needs to be assessed at the hospital.

What are your thoughts?
