Cat Burglar.

Today at recess, a mother came to school dressed like a cat.

She wanted her kid.

There had been an ongoing custody disagreement, and I had specific instructions to never like the student leave with her mother.

She took her child, climbed through a hole in the fence, and would not stop as me and 23 third graders were chasing after her.

Three hours later she came back and apologized for her actions. (and withdrew her student saying the kcmsd is terrible)

Well, at least I got an apology, but never thought I would be so scared on Halloween. Having a student taken away from you without your consent is the worse feeling in the world.

Happy Halloween!
