7-year-old girl allowed to go home using fake note
HARRIS COUNTY - A 7-year-old girl was allowed to take a school bus home after forging a fake note.
Charlie Dahu’s daughter, Rosabella, forged a note stating that she was allowed to take the bus home from her elementary school instead of going to the after-school program.
The school staff accepted the note.
"You can clearly see she did not even spell the word bus right," Dahu said.
Dahu didn’t know that his daughter was outside of their home on Monday until a neighbor called him. The neighbor, Rolando Lozano, said that he knew something was not right when Rosabella asked to use the restroom.
Lozano’s family took her in and waited for her father to come home.
“I was shaking, I was scared, I was just glad to see her in good health and that nothing happened to her," Dahu said.
Dahu is now wanting answers aes to how she was allowed to leave the school without checking with him and Rosabella's mother.
The elementary school released a statement saying that the school district is investigating the matter and are reviewing training procedures for the after-school grant program staff.
