The animal was sitting in a corner behind the teacher's desk.
Staff tried to guide it away from the room, but it wouldn't budge.
"We were standing for carline for parents to drop off students around 7:20am or so, when suddenly the coyote ran straight into the 8th grade classroom," said Father Filiberto Cortez. "It's now part of the decor."
