School Sparks Outrage After They Sent A Girl Home With No Pants On

Parents from Palm Coast Florida could not believe what happened after their 6-year-old daughter was sent home from school with no pants on. When their daughter stepped off the bus, she was only wearing a shirt and her underwear.

Raymond McCurdy, the girls’ father said, “She’s been through enough in her life already and she’s only 6. ” He also explained that his daughter was humiliated by what the school did. The poor girl was even crying as she stepped off the bus that afternoon.

He added, “I kind of lifted her shirt once we got in the car and noticed she was in panties and a T-shirt only, her soiled clothes in a bag. ”

The concerned dad also explained that his daughter is a student at Belle Terre Elementary School. She had an “accident” while in class and when she raised her hand to ask permission to use the bathroom, her teacher just ignored her. When she was acknowledged, it was too late. The dad also shared that his daughter had medical issues and “when she has to go she has to go.”

He said that he is not only angry with what happened to her daughter, but she is also concerned for her safety. He asked, “What would have happened if my kid would have gotten touched by somebody?” The girl was sent home dressed only in her school-issued underwear. According to him, the school would always send her home fully-clothed, except for this instance.

After this happened, he immediately went back to school and had a discussion with the assistant principal regarding the incident. He shared, “We asked her why my daughter was sent home in just panties and a T-shirt and she begins to tell me, ‘We thought she had a long enough shirt to be able to put her on the school bus and send her home.’”

Their reason was not enough for the father. He is calling out for the school to be held responsible for what happened before they do the same to another kid. McCurdy said, “They make me send her to school in clothes to their expectations, why couldn’t you send my kid home in clothes to your expectations?”

According to him, the school called him to explain that they would do their own investigation of the incident. News 6 also contacted the school to ask about the matter and they were informed that an investigative team has already been put on the case. But McCurdy hired a lawyer to help them with the case.

In cases similar to this, parents should always communicate with the school if their child has medical issues. The school or the teacher needs to know if the child needs extra bathroom breaks or even during class hours. Also, to avoid this problem, it is best to let the child bring extra clothing in their bags.

This way, if the child has an accident in school and they would not be able to provide a decent change of clothes, your child is ready.

Many agreed that sending the girl home in her understand was not the right thing to do. If the school cannot provide appropriate clothing for the child, they should’ve contacted the father instead of just sending the girl home and humiliate her.
