Arrest of grandmother fighting Tatum ISD dress code stemmed from Head Start documents, continuing to send boy to school

Edwina “Randi” Woodley, 51, was booked Friday into the Rusk County Jail on charges of child endangerment and perjury.

RUSK COUNTY, Texas — The arrest of a grandmother fighting the Tatum ISD dress code stemmed from continuing to send the 4-year-old boy to school after she was told he had been “unenrolled” and from differences about who is actually the boy’s guardian, documents show.

Edwina “Randi” Woodley, 51, was booked Friday into the Rusk County Jail on charges of child endangerment and perjury. She was released Saturday on $22,500 in bonds.

According to a probable cause affidavit for her arrest, Woodley on Oct. 15 sent her grandson, Michael Trimble, to Tatum Primary School after being told “numerous times” he was no longer enrolled at the school and was not to be on school property.
