School Aide Tricked 4th Graders into Eating Pet Treats

Jun 09, 2014

An aide at a Pennsylvania school has been put on leave for giving fourth graders pet treats and saying they were cookies, the Associated Press reports via WFMZ.

They were given to approximately 75 fourth graders at New Hanover-Upper Frederick Elementary School last week during recess. Gabriel Moore, a student who ate three of them, told WFMZ that the aide told them they were dog treats at first, but then said they were cookies and totally acceptable to eat.

In an advisory to parents, the superintendent did not say what kind of treat the students were given, but said they would not be dangerous to eat.
