School Authorities Fell For This Forged Note
It may seem like a hilarious prank, but the situation could have had serious consequences for a 2nd grader named Rosabella Dehu. Dehu was successfully able to write a note seemingly from her parents, which she forged in an attempt to get herself out of an afterschool program.
The note read, “I want Rosabella to go too dus 131 today!” was a complete success, and she was able to skip out on her after school program for the day.
That afternoon, she ended up hopping on a bus and riding all the way to her house. Getting home early and unable to get inside with her parents still at work, she lounged around in her front yard until her father finally got home.
When Rosabella’s parents finally realized what had happened they were furious. They took their frustrations to the school authorities, who didn’t take much responsibility for the mistake other than offering them this response:
“We are reviewing our training procedures to ensure that our after-school grant program staff is properly trained in dismissal procedures.”
This can be a very dangerous world, and I certainly wouldn’t want my child wandering around the city alone, hopefully, it doesn’t take a child getting kidnapped or worse for our schools to start making some changes.
