Classroom Pet Handling


Dear Parents,

In our class, we have two classroom pets. We have two Dumbo rats.
Their names are Spot and Whiskers. Like all pets, they require care and
attention. I will do my best to ensure that all the animals we care for
are child-friendly; however, even docile animals do, on occasion bite
or scratch. If you want to allow your child to interact with our rats,
please fill out the permission slip at the bottom of the page. Please
understand that I will not be able to allow your child to help care for
our pet without your written permission.

Thanks you,

Miss Catlett
