An Elementary Teacher Sent Home This Heartbreaking Note With Her Students

A teacher recently made her students take home an extremely embarrassing and shockingly inconsiderate note to their parents. Evidently, Sharon D. Perry Dunnigan of the Buffalo school system, could not handle the multitude of smells coming from her students. As a result, she made every child and their parent sign and return a note that said:


Several children…are coming to school..with soiled, stained, or dirty clothes. Some give off unpleasant smells and some appear unclean and unkempt.

…It is a health and safety concern. It also makes it difficult for me to be close to them or even want to touch them…

Parents wanted to work with Dunnigan and proposed soliciting donations for new uniforms, hygiene lesson plans or just washing the dirty clothes. Her calloused response?

What do you want me to do, apologize? I’m not going to apologize because I got my point across…

We expect teachers to provide comfort to our children, not to degrade them. Luckily, children can bounce back and rise above the Sharon D. Perry Dunnigans of the world.

What kind of liberal f*g is the writer of this post? Those scumbag parents should be jailed for sending their kids to school smelling like s**t! God do I miss George Bush
