Two Arlington boys take the cake when it comes to first day of school arrivals.
They arrived for their first day of fifth grade in the back of an Arlington police squad car, thanks to a mishap with bus scheduling and the kindness of one APD officer.
Barbara Te’evale Vo’a shared the story on Facebook, saying her kids missed the bus because it came through their neighborhood earlier than expected. She was having car troubles and couldn’t take them, she wrote.
But Arlington police Cpl. Brett Worman just happened to be on the block helping a stranded motorist.
According to Arlington police, who posted the story on social media Tuesday, one of the boys approached the officer and asked if he could help.
What better way to help than a police escort to school?
“Thank you God for this blessing,” Barbara wrote on Facebook. “[And] to this police officer who went above and beyond the call of duty to drive my boys to school this morning.”
“My boys will have stories for days and be the talk of fifth grade with their police escort.”
