Did this really just happen?

I had a parent flag me down in the hallway. It was Tardy Boy's mom. She asked me if Tardy Boy was at school. Umm, yes, he is. How do you not know that?? Yes, she was home. I know she works nights, but she was looking for Tardy Boy - 2nd grade, and his siblings in 5th, kindergarten, and pre-k! You would think getting 4 kids off to school would be important and she'd know where they were! Then she asked me what he was wearing and if he looked ok. Oh my.

Goodness! Doesn't your heart just break over the home lives of some of these students?

And they wonder why test scores and school performance are low. You can only hope that the student has enough drive and self-motivation to want to do the best they can. Unfortunately, that is not the case most of the time. I wonder why some people get to be parents?

This is a tragic case of a mother not prioratizing her kids first. Some mothers dont get the concept and the importance of getting there kids to school on time.

Wow. Too bad this didn't happen on April Fools Day! The mom may not have liked it, but you could have had some fun with it!

Classic.... like now it is necessary to tell parents what "their" child wore before they left for school.
