A Las Vegas mother claims a substitute teacher taped children’s face masks to their faces in a fourth-grade classroom.
The mom of a 9-year-old boy is calling for a Clark County School District substitute teacher’s resignation after the alleged incident.
The mom spoke to FOX5 under the condition of anonymity, but wanting other parents to know what she said has happened at Reedom Elementary School in Mountain’s Edge.
“I was furious, furious. I was scared for my son on what kind of long-term effect it is going to have on him socially, the fact that the entire class was laughing,” she said.
According to the student’s mom, the boy got up to drink water, but forgot to put his mask on.
“He went to get a sip of water, forgot to put the mask on. The teacher did not tell him to put it back on or send him to the office, she instead pulled him up in front of the classroom in front of all of the students and she then taped the mask across the top of his face,” she said.
The mom said the sub added a second layer of tape from his nose to his forehead, and with the tape still on his face, he went to the office to pick up homework he’d forgotten at home and his dad dropped off.
“When he went to the office to pick up that homework is when one of the administrators noticed the tape on his face,” she said.
Alarmed, that administrator took the tape off the child and alerted the principal who went to the classroom to investigate, she claimed..
