Katie Dickens was busy getting her 5-year-old daughter ready to begin kindergarten in Walton County, Georgia.
She made sure to fill out Form 3300, which must be completed by parents enrolling their kids in the Georgia Public School System for the first time. The form has four categories for incoming students: vision, hearing, dental, and nutrition.
Just as the school year was about to begin, Katie’s husband found a letter in the mail from the soon-to-be elementary school, signed by the secretary. After ripping it open, he immediately called Katie in a haze of concern and confusion.
“So, is the school calling our kid fat?” he asked her.
