A missing Warner Robins 10-year-old left school after being sent to the principal's office due to an unsigned note to his parents.
That's according to Houston County school superintendent Robin Hines.
He said the note is called a "plan for improvement" or PFI.
That's a note sent home from school regarding some issue -- such as arriving late to school, not turning in homework or talking in class.
The note must be signed by a parent and returned to school.
He said they are "fairly common" and typically involve a "very, very minor" problem.
Hines said the PFI typically doesn't involve discipline issues.
He said Kit Colburn was sent to the principal's office from home room at 8:45 Tuesday, and that's the last time the boy was seen.
Hines said Colburn would not have attracted unusual attention when he left his classroom.
