A Texas elementary school regularly threatens criminal charges to parents who enter the property to drop off or pick up their children.
Branch Elementary School in Magnolia requires parents to wait in a lengthy car pickup/drop-off zone each day no matter how close they live to the building. The policy, which is enforced by Montgomery County constables, was instituted under the auspices of increased safety.
Wendy Jarman, a private school teacher and parent who pulled her children from Bear Branch, told KRIV-26 on Tuesday that Principal Holly Ray is out of line.
“She’s threatening to arrest people,” Jarman said. “This has happened to many parents. They have been cited. They have been threatened that if they step one foot on school property [then] they will be arrested and charged with who knows what.
Parent Frank Young knows exactly what Jarman is talking about – he was one of those parents issued a warning under the new policy.
