The mother of a six-year-old girl who walked out of Chatfield Elementary Monday afternoon says she wants to see procedural changes in the school district.

Auri Ogden says her daughter, a first grade student at Chatfield Elementary went to the nurse and was sent back class showing no signs of illness. Ogden says the girl went back to class and told her teacher that she was going home and her mother was on her way to pick her up. That's when the girl just walked out of school and the school says no one saw her leave. The girl’s babysitter found her two hours later a block from her home crying.

The school says they've had a meeting to go over proper procedures when students go home sick. The students will either need to have a note or an announcement will be made over the loud speaker.

    i really feel like the child has lied mom new that she did and mom rewared her for that, my understand the child didnt come to school the next and got new shoes, the nurse did her job, the teacher as well, its up to the parent to teach the child not to lie and look how many people got in to trouble because of her, it make me sick that parents would go to this level, if she would have donr her job at home the child would have known not to leave school. I have kids at that school and those front office ladies are the best as well as the nurse she has always called me when my child was sick, bumped or brused.dont blame the catfield blam the parents, the little girl is always complaing and when asked she stated she didnt want to be there thanks chatfield parent
