Thanks to the critter, students at a charter school in southwest Charlotte, got to leave for the day on Thursday. According to a letter sent to parents at Unity Classical Charter school, there was a snake inside a classroom.
The school confirmed to Channel 9 in Charlotte that a teacher found the snake after coming back from recess. School officials said in a statement “Out of an abundance of caution, our staff made the decision to send students home immediately until we were certain there was no longer a risk”. No one was hurt. A ‘possible copperhead’ snake was found in this North Carolina classroom. Say what?
One authority from the school told the television station that the reptile was believed to be a copperhead snake. And what’s worse, the snake was not caught! It is not absolutely certain what type of snake it is. The school goes on to say they are working with wildlife officials to find and remove the snake. Wildlife officials say copperhead snakes are in abundance right now because they are chasing the seasonal cicadas.
