(KVOA) A Tucson, Arizona family claims a teacher told his class to write, "I want to die in a fire" for punishment for misbehaving during a fire drill.

One mom is calling it a "forced suicide note," and she's furious.

The family said it happened at Alice Vail Middle School.

Sarah Morales said she and her classmates not only had to write that statement but put it above their heads as they walked around school.

"I just started crying, said Morales.

Morales said after ordering the class to walk around the school and display their signs for 10 to 15 minutes, "He made us do it again, but only for 5 minutes."

She said he kept the same theme for their homework assignment.

"We had to write, 'I want to die in a fire' 100 times," said Morales.

Her mom SallyMarie Schreiber is still in shock.

"It's like your own child writing a suicide not being forced to write a suicide note," said Schreiber.
