Athens Student No-Show; Placed In Alternative School

It's alternative school for the rest of the school year for an Athens student. 

Two weeks ago, 13 year old Melanie Bowers accused several hispanic students of attacking her over an anti-illegal immigration sign she brought to school the accusation turned out to be false. 

Athens ISD says they have tried to hold two hearings to discuss Bowers' punishment, one as late as Wednesday morning, but the parents did not show to either.

The school district says they have tried multiple times in many ways to contact the bowers.

If they can't reach the Bowers, they will file a criminal report. A class C Misdemeanor for non-compliance of code, a standard procedure when a child stops coming to school.
