The Wellesley High School Bradford news site reports on a scare at the school this month caused by a runaway tarantula that snuck into math class by hitching a ride in its owner’s coat. After the spider creeped out at least some of the owner’s classmates, the teacher and student combined to re-capture the beast.
Apparently, this was not a therapy pet, like the pup that one student brought to school as a discussion topic at the recent WHS Seminar Day. Nor is it likely that new security systems being plotted for Wellesley schools (a topic for the upcoming Town Meeting, Article 17) would have prevented this unexpected guest from entering WHS.
