BOCA RATON, Fla. — One teacher has issued a warning to parents who forget their children are online learning while they walk around half-dressed or smoking marijuana.

During a meeting Wednesday of the Palm Beach County School Board in Florida, elementary school teacher Edith Pride didn't hold back in scolding pot smoking parents, WPEC reports.

"Parents, when you are helping your children at their computer please do not appear with big joints in your hands and cigarettes," said Pride. "Those joints be as big as cigars. Oh yeah, we've seen it all."

Pride continued, saying many parents aren't dressed properly when appearing online in front of an entire class.

"Parents, please make sure that you have on proper clothing when you are walking behind your child’s computer because we've seen them in their drawers, their bras, and everything else," added Pride.

Other teachers joined in, with one saying she had seen a student's father drinking beer at 11:45 in the morning, while another showed off her ankle monitor.
