A second-grade pupil in Oklahoma was expelled from her Christian elementary school last week after telling another female student that she had a crush on her, according to multiple outlets.

Chloe Shelton, a former pupil at Rejoice Christian School in Owasso, Okla., was removed from class after making the comment to her classmate.

Her mother, Delanie Shelton, told CNN that Chloe was held in the principal’s office for a period of time following the incident.

Upon picking up her daughter, Shelton was told not to bring her daughter to school the following day.

The school’s superintendent notified Shelton the next day that 8-year-old Chloe, as well as Shelton’s 5-year-old son, were no longer welcome as students at the school, according to CNN.

“I was so blindsided. I was angry, hurt, betrayed, sad… so many different emotions. I just couldn’t believe it,” Shelton told CNN. “I asked him to have a sit down meeting to discuss it and process it better and he refused, saying that ‘nothing more needed to be discussed.'”

Shelton told local outlet Fox23 News that Chloe was upset over the expulsion.

“My daughter was crying saying ‘Does God still love me?’”

In a statement to CNN, Superintendent Joel Pepin stated, “Due to privacy and other factors, it is the school’s policy to refrain from public comments regarding any particular student or family.”

“They ripped my kids out of the only school they’ve ever really known away from their teachers and friends they’ve had over the past four years over something my daughter probably doesn’t know or fully understand,” Shelton told Fox23 News.
