Houston (AP) A 7-year-old Houston girl managed to get out of an after-school program with a fake excuse note that she wrote herself, in large print with misspellings.
The girl’s father, Charlie Dahu (DAY’-hoo), told KTRK-TV that his daughter was wrong to write the note, but that it’s obvious it was written by a child.
The note says, “I want Rosabella to go too dus 131 today.”
With the note, Rosabella was able to take a bus home, rather than participating in an after-school program. But the girl couldn’t get into her house. She spent part of the afternoon outside, until asking a neighbor to let her use the bathroom.
The neighbor kept Rosabella until her father was located.
The Sheldon Independent School District says the incident is under investigation.
