A father is irate after his daughter was sent home and humiliated by being stripped to her underpants after wetting herself. The six-year-old was reportedly in tears and the father is now demanding answers.
A Florida dad is furious after his 6-year-old daughter was sent home by her school wearing nothing but a shirt and panties after she had a wetting accident in class.
According to WKMG-TV, Palm Coast resident Raymond McCurdy picked his daughter up from the bus stop Tuesday to find her in nothing but a T-shirt and underwear, crying all the while.
“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,” McCurdy said.
“She’s been through enough in her life already and she’s only 6,” McCurdy added. “She has medical issues, and when she has to go, she has to go.”
According to McCurdy, his daughter had her hand up to go to the bathroom but the teacher ignored her. He says that his daughter’s school, Belle Terre Elementary, knew about her medical issues. He also says that he had never had a problem with schools recognizing the issue until he moved to Florida last month.
“What would have happened if my kid would have gotten touched by somebody?” McCurdy asked.
The father contacted the school, whose answer to his inquiry caused even more infuriation.
“We asked her why my daughter was sent home in just panties and a T-shirt, and (the assistant principal) 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.’”
“They make me send her to school in clothes to their expectations,” McCurdy said. “Why couldn’t you send my kid home in clothes to your expectations?”
“She was picked on, bullied, she was laughed at,” said Jennifer McCurdy, the girl’s mother. “There are four contacts on our daughter’s emergency card. Pick up the phone and call us. We will come get our child.”
The school released a statement saying, “There are procedures and protocols when incidents such as this happens. We’ve reviewed those during an investigation at Belle Terre Elementary School. We’ve invited the parents to sit down and discuss our findings, but they have declined.”
The McCurdys, meanwhile, have hired a lawyer and say they want justice for their daughter, in addition to making sure this never happens again at Belle Terre.
Understandably, the girl could not be sitting in class with wet pants throughout the day. But no school officials thought to call the father and have him come pick her up or bring new pants?
