Hey Kids! Want an Oreo? Where’s your permission slip?

No, it’s not for the school field trip or for the weekend camping trip. It’s to eat an Oreo. Yes, that’s right, this week a mother was instructed that she would have to sign a permission slip for her child to be allowed to eat an Oreo Cookie at school.

Hey Kids! Want an Oreo? Where’s your permission slip?

According to Mommyish, a Pennsylvania school sent a permission slip home with a class of middle school students so parents could consent to their children eating a single Oreo cookie during a project in science class. The permission slip was photographed by one mother, who posted it on Twitter under the handle MainLineHousewife.

The permission slip stated that the Oreo cookies would be used to simulate geographical movement during science class and those students (with permission) would be allowed to eat their Oreos when the experiment was finished. We heard that the permission slip even included the complete ingredients for a Double-Stuff Oreo cookie. You know, just in case.
