A Parent Trespasses a Local School

According to NBC 10 in Providence, a parent of a Freetown-Lakeville student is facing charges after she allegedly entered multiple schools in the district without authorization last Thursday. The 28-year-old Kayla Farris Churchill apparently entered two elementary schools, a middle school, and the high school. She entered through a door at the high school that was propped open and once inside, she was able to wander around the high school for more than 30 minutes, taking videos of her experience. Freetown police said when the woman began approaching students and staff, she was reported to building leadership, who immediately notified the School Resource Officer. Churchill reportedly said she was concerned about the safety of her children, especially after the mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.


She was charged with disturbing a school assembly and trespassing and is set to face a judge in Wareham District Court at a later date.
