Back to School: Alligator Shows Up Early at Katy ISD's Beck Junior High Ready for Class

If the alligator above had his (or her, we can never tell without lifting their skirts) way, school would be in session at Beck Junior High in Katy Independent School District. Fort Bend County sheriff's deputies found this joker loafing around, smoking cigarettes and whistling at the lady gators on school grounds, and posted the photo to their Facebook page.

We can't say for sure, but we bet he was ditching math class. We get it, gator. We hate math too.

With classes scheduled to start within the next couple weeks and in-service before that, this would be the time to clear the campuses in Katy of large reptiles. Or maybe he could stick around for show and tell.
