ALBANY, N.Y. -- A mother has been arrested in Albany after police say she exposed herself to children at an elementary school. Police say it happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday at the North Albany Academy.
Officers say Aydrea Meaders, 24, got on stage during an assembly in the school’s cafeteria and began to dance. They say, while on the stage, she then partially disrobed in front of students. School staff quickly responded and the assembly was immediately dismissed.
"We encouraged parents to participate at the events at school. We want more parents to be engaged at school and obviously this is something that goes without saying that crossed a line and it was shocking to everyone who was there today," said Albany School District Spokesman Ron Lesko.
Meaders has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and public lewdness.
The school's providing resource officers who are available to discuss the incident with children.
