Looks Legit

Rosabella Dahu, 7, didn’t want to go to an after-school program at Sheldon Elementary School in Houston, Texas, so she forged an excuse note saying that she should “go too dus 131 today.” School officials accepted the unsigned note and let the girl take the bus home, but she got there so early that her parents weren’t there and she couldn’t get inside. A neighbor took her in. The school is “investigating” to “ensure that our after-school grant program staff is properly trained in dismissal procedures.” Rosabella’s father is less than pleased. “You can clearly see she did not even spell the word bus right.” (RC/KTRK Houston) ...You can. I can. That the people minding your kids can’t says a lot.
