Hunter Carlson’s first day of fourth grade at Saigling Elementary in Plano turned out to be a memorable one after he received a ride in a police SUV to school.

Hunter’s mother, Tiffani Carlson couldn’t be there to take her son to his first day of school because she was away doing important training with the National Guard. Tiffani told DFW CBS, “It was awful. I woke up this morning knowing it was gonna be a rough morning for me. I’ve already been kind of teary-eyed on and off.”

Hunter had no idea that he would arrive to his first day of school in such a flashy way, which made the moment even more exciting. He even got to sit on a police motorcycle to pose for photos.

The boy couldn’t help by tear up a little when he received a video chat call from his mom right before he went inside the school. “She’s never been gone this long,” he told the news station.

Happily, Hunter also told the man who escorted him, Plano Police Chief Greg Rushin, that the trip in the police car was “a dream come true.” Rushin was pleased he could help make the morning more special.
