Yesterday afternoon I received a call from the director of the daycare center that's across the street from my house. If you don't remember the original story click here.
She wanted to get some first hand information about the incident I reported. She had already spoken to her staff about it, and had questioned the janitor who also was an eyewitness to the event. After I finished with my version of the story, she told me that her entire staff had lied to her about this. I know, it's hard to believe, people lying to cover their butts. But, it's true and she even seemed a little dismayed by it.
She also told me that this child hasn't been going to that daycare for very long, only about 2 weeks. He doesn't like to leave the play area once he's out there so he hides out in the play houses. Smart kid! I guess they now count the children when they leave to ensure everyone's accounted for.
