An elementary school in France was forced to take action after parents of late-arriving students were seen throwing their children over a six-foot-high gate so that they could get to class on time. The ill-advised method for meeting the morning bell was reportedly noticed by administrators at the Trillade school in the city of Avignon, where a tall fence to campus closes shut at the 8:30 AM start to the day. Alas, it would appear that some parents have been unable to get their youngsters to school before then and, as a result, came up with a rather reckless way around the restriction.
"Parents arriving after the bell were literally throwing their children" over the gate, revealed astounded school director Sanaa Meziane, "It hasn’t happened that many times," she explained, "but as little as it happened, we preferred to get ahead of it." As such, the school posted a bizarre-looking sign showing a stick figure tossing their tot over the fence and featuring an exhortation to parents not to throw their kids over the gate.
