Some pretty unusual signs recently appeared posted outside a school in France with an important message for parents: "Stop throwing students over the gate."
The reason for the signs is simple. When the school day begins, the gate is closed. So parents who have been arriving late with their kids have literally been tossing them over the locked gate so they could get to class. The sign shows a cartoon of a parent hurling a small child to get over the fence. The text on the sign asks parents not to throw their children, and instead wait for the gates to be opened again at 10 a.m. or 3 p.m.
School officials say there have been a few cases of kid tossing and luckily no one's been hurt. (La Provence)
