Kindergarteners in Michigan report feeling ‘woozy’ after drinking margaritas at school

Several kindergarteners reported feeling dizzy after drinking ready-to-drink Jose Cuervo margaritas that a little girl brought to her Michigan school and shared with her classmates. According to Fox 2 Detroit, the children sipped the drinks from Dixie Cups during snack time at Grand River Academy in Livonia on Friday.

When parents Alexis Smith and Dominique Zanders heard that their kids had each taken several sips of the drink, they were furious. Zanders said her daughter “felt woozy, a little dizzy.” She explained, “The girl poured it in her cup and she drank it and the girl ended up telling her what it is, and she went and told the teacher there is liquor in this cup, and the teacher gave her a funny face.”

Smith claimed her daughter had four or five sips of the drink and informed her that her friend who brought it knew it was alcoholic. The school said the student might be disciplined and that parents were promptly alerted. She added, “If your child knows what it is, nothing wrong with it – but they should know not to touch it. That it’s not for kids.” 

A representative for the school issued a statement following the incident explaining that “While we try to keep an eye on everything our students bring to school, that’s simply not possible.” It continued, “It’s unfortunate that these types of adult beverages can be easily mistaken for child-friendly drinks.”

Some parents condemned the school, while others placed blame upon the girl’s parents for bringing the margarita mix to school.
