SALEM, Ore. - The principal of a Salem, Oregon, elementary school is apologizing for a letter sent to parents that said the school will call the state's Department of Human Services if parents don’t pick up their children on time each day.
The letter said:
“Children must be picked up on time. If they are not picked up on time, we will call DHS and you will then have to pick them up at court the next day.”
An official with the school district said the principal is apologizing for the letter and will likely draft a new, corrected letter explaining what went wrong.
