A group of parents voiced concerns over how a school district handled a sewage spill in their children’s school.
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – A group of parents voiced their concerns over how a school district handled a sewage spill at an elementary school Monday. As reported by CBS 11 News, over 60 parents met with McKinney ISD officials Tuesday regarding the incident at Dean and Mildred Bennett Elementary School.
Parent Holli Hofstetter is quoted in the report as stating of the reported delay in notifying parents about the spill as well as moving the students to safer areas, “Why were they allowed to stay in their classrooms and not taken to a different part of the school immediately?”
McKinney ISD Spokesman Cody Cunningham is further quoted as stating in response to the questioning, “The lag time; there’s no excuse for it. I’m not going to stand up here and say it’s acceptable. I can tell you that we’re going to do what we can to make it better and make it right.”
Several of the parents reportedly demanded that the damaged carpet in the school be torn out.
