Spring elementary school yearbook accidentally notes last year's mass shootings


When mom Angela Flauaus opened up her son's elementary yearbook, she was surprised to see the current events section in the back included information about the movie theater shooting in Colorado and the Sandy Hook school shooting.

"I think the thought of, 'What was the world like, what happened this year while you were in school,' was a very interesting thought, but I just don't think it was filtered for the grade level," Flauaus said.

Apparently that's exactly what happened. According to Conroe ISD, the publisher of the yearbook put in the general current events insert in Broadway Elementary's yearbook instead of the elementary-level version of the current events.

"We got an email that there was additional information in the back of the yearbook about some things you may not want your kids to know about," parent Suzanne Earl said.

The school quickly notified parents, who had the choice to either pick up the yearbook or wait for replacement inserts to arrive. Teachers took away yearbooks from any students who already had them.

"I already have autographs and stuff in it already so I really want it back," fourth grader Annika Moreno said.

The publisher is sending replacement current events section overnight so everyone should have their yearbooks in time for the last day of school.

"So there's two or three pieces that I would not like to be there but everything else is interesting," Flauaus said.

The school district says the new inserts should have arrived by Thursday, the last day of school.
