Teacher sends boy home with bag of poo

Posted Apr 23, 2009 by Chris V. Thangham
The father opened the bag held by his 5-year-old son and found a smelly package inside the bag. The teacher gave the boy a bag of poo as punishment.
Jason was shocked to see the smelly bag inside his son’s backpack. His boy’s teacher at Apple Valley Elementary in Washington bagged up a piece of human feces and put it inside his backpack with a small note attached to it.
The note read: "This little turd was on the floor in my room."
The boy father, who didn’t reveal his last name, told KOMO TV:
I'm still kind of in shock over this, because why would somebody do this? It's disgusting!
Jason said his son’s teacher, Mrs. Graham, called him and said that her classroom was “stinky”. She asked him whether his son had problems. He told her that his son has extra clothes in his backpack .
After Jason’s wife found the smelly package, Jason emailed the school officials but so far they haven’t responded.
Jason is still furious about the incident:
"What would have happened if it had stayed in there and she hadn't checked the bag? And other kids were playing on the bus and it got out? And it's a very hazardous thing. It's disgusting!"
The school’s superintendent told KOMO TV that they are investigating the incident and are questioning the teacher and the school’s principal.
The school officials said they will meet with Jason and his wife next week.
