TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! HICKMAN MILLS ELEMENTARY STUDENTS FORCED TO USE OUTDOOR PORT-A-POTTY AMID FREEZING TEMPERATURES!!!
Right now we're offering yet another lesson in local education FAIL from a nearby school district that has become increasingly embroiled in controversy . . .
HERE'S 1ST PERSON TESTIMONY REGARDING A COLD WEATHER HICKMAN MILLS FIASCO!!!
The deets are chilling . . .
"Ingels Elementary with an enrollment of over 450 students conducted classes on January 8th although there was a lack of running water. They required the kids and teachers to use port a potties.
In the frigid weather conditions they had to put on coats and go outside to use the facilities. They had to use hand sanitizer to wash their hands and relied on Igloo coolers for drinking waters. They apparently used bottled water to prepare meals.
Asking teachers to teach and students to attend school under these conditions is unconscionable. School district officials responsible should be held accountable. I'm sure they would not want their children to use outhouses. Additionally, hand sanitizer is not an adequate substitute for soap and water the discharge of bodily waste. The community should be outraged.
It is my understanding that district officials were aware of the problem since last Friday but allowed the school to open without adequate water services anyway. This matter should be reported to DESE and DFS for investigation. Whomever made the decision to open the school should be disciplined.
The mainstream media is not aware or is ignoring the situation."
The school is closed today and officials were not immediately available for comment . . .
