Note Says Students Smell

Smelly Kid Urgent Note

First there was a letter sent home to parents from a school in Alabama regarding the use of corporal punishment on their children.  Now there is another letter coming home to parents of Pre-K students who live in a high-poverty community of Buffalo, New York, regarding “unclean and unkept” students.

The Pre-K teacher of BUILD Academy, Sharon D. Perry-Dunnigan, sent the note home with the students because she was concerned about the children coming to school wearing “soiled, stained or dirty clothes”, and many were giving off “unpleasant smells”.   Because of this, she wasn’t able to “be close to them or even touch them”.  The note says that this is a “health and safety concern”, and then requests the parents AND the Pre-K students to sign the note acknowledging that they have received and read it.

Because of this note, parents contacted the District Parent Coordinating Council and complained about the teacher.  Mrs. Perry-Dunnigan will now only be able to send notes home with the students IF they are approved by the principal. However, this isn’t enough of a punishment for the parents, who are asking that the school district take additional disciplinary action against the Pre-K teacher.  Many parents feel that these problems should have been addressed by a phone call to the student’s parents or scheduled a meeting.

But as cruel as this may sound to parents, many have come to the veteran teachers defense.  Some bloggers have said,

“I think this teacher did the right thing. If some parents don’t have the good sense to take better care of their kids, then all the other parents should know about it because the health of their kids is at risk too by other dirty smelly kids.   Who knows what diseases they could spread in those conditions?

Others are also saying,

“You know what? I can’t say that I blame her. Kids should be clean when they go to school. Period.
