A Texas school district is investigating after the staff at one of its elementary schools was fooled by a misspelled, suspiciously childlike note passed off by a 7-year-old student, KTRK reports. Instead of going to the after-school program at Sheldon Elementary like she was supposed to on Monday, Rosabella Dahu gave the staff a note. The note, verbatim, reads: "I want Rosabella to go too dus 131 today. To: Ms. Reign." Staff promptly sent Rosabella along to the school bus.

Rosabella spent the rest of Monday afternoon locked outside of her home alone, eventually needing to ask a neighbor to use their bathroom. Her father was horrified and incredulous. "You can clearly see she did not even spell the word 'bus' right," Charlie Dahu tells KTRK. The school district says it's investigating the incident and will take disciplinary action against staff if necessary. "As always, student safety is our top priority," the district says in a statement. (More forgery stories.)
