The assistant principal encountered a first grade girl flying down the hallway on the third day of school. Her hands were up and her fingers spread. The look on her face was sheer panic. Her words to the assistant principal tumbled out in terror like a machine gun on rapid fire.
“I went to the restroom for just a second…just a second… When I returned to the room, it was empty. They’re missing….They’re gone…The entire class. They’re gone and I can’t find them anywhere… They were there and now they’re gone.” A genuine mystery.
The assistant principal and first grader returned to the room together. All the while the little girl was muttering, “They’re missing…all gone.” They opened the door to the classroom and all of the students were present.
Looking first with big eyes, she smiled sheepishly and said, “Oops… Wrong door!”, and skipped into her classroom.
It’s great to be back in school.
