The article said it was just a handful of students. And yes, in the first scene of the opera, Faust is considering killing himself, but calls on the devil to stop him. This is nothing that isn't in most fairy tales, though!

And there's no abortion. Marguerite does go crazy and kills her baby after it is born, but not before. This is the sin for which she's imprisoned and prays for forgiveness. Probably pretty weighty for a 1st grader, but the third graders seemed fine, according to the article I found.
