A kindergartner brought in a liquorized margarita mixed drink to a Livonia, Michigan school, for snack time, and shared it with multiple classmates,.
According to the study, a Grand River Academy student brought a four-pack of Jose Cuervo pre-mixed margaritas. During snack time, the drink was poured in Dixie cups and several students had a drink.
One mother said her child had "four to five sips," claiming it was just juice. She said her daughter felt "woozy" and "a little dizzy" following the incident.
"The girl poured it in her cup and she drank it, and the girl ended up telling her what it is, and she went and told the teacher there is liquor in this cup, and the teacher gave her a funny face," the mother told the news station.
According to the study, the school called poison control when it learned what happened. The school also contacts the parents to inform them that they were all physically good, and that it would be disciplining the student if necessary, according to the report.
While we strive to keep an eye on everything our students bring to school, that's simply not possible, the school said in a statement. It's unfortunate that these kinds of adult beverages can be easily mistaken for child-friendly beverages.
