A kindergartner brought in an alcoholic margarita mixed drink into a Michigan school for snack time and shared the drink with multiple classmates, according to FOX2 Detroit.
The Grand River Academy student brought in a four-pack of Jose Cuervo pre-mixed margaritas, according to the report. During snack time, the drink was poured in Dixie cups and multiple students had a drink, the report said.
One mother said her child had “four to five sips,” thinking it was just juice. The mother said her daughter felt “woozy” and “a little dizzy” afterward.
“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 report, the school called poison control when it learned what happened. The school also contacted the parents to let them know they were all physically OK and that it would be disciplining the student, if necessary, the report said.
“While we try 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 types of adult beverages can be easily mistaken for child-friendly drinks.”
