DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. –
A 7-year-old girl at Thomas Claggett Elementary School in District Heights, Md., was beaten unconscious by at least four classmates Tuesday morning.
It happened during recess in the school’s gymnasium.
The little girl’s parents say their daughter was taken by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in D.C. She was diagnosed with a mild concussion.
According to FOX 5, the attack on Tuesday, happened when there were about 75 kids crammed into the gymnasium and only about five teachers supervising. None of the teachers apparently saw the incident.
Smyers and Holland the parents of the little girl are concerned about what not only seems to be a lack of supervision, but the fact that school officials haven’t disciplined the boys involved or informed other parents of what happened.
“Notice needs to be sent out because next time it could be a little pocket knife or a gun to school,” says Holland.
She says her daughter will likely not be coming back to Claggett Elementary School. She says both she and Smyers believe their daughter’s life at the school is in danger.
