A video showing a mother confronting a group of middle schoolers is making its rounds on social media. The video was posted yesterday and has gone viral.
Action 10 News has learned that a mother has been banned from all school campuses on CCISD.
The video was shot by a student at Cunningham Middle School. It shows a woman surrounded by middle school students while she’s cursing at a group of girls.
The mother can be heard saying “I’ll eat you alive (curse word)! I’ll eat you alive. (curse word)!”
Students who gathered around the woman and girls fire back also using profane language telling her she’s too old to be fighting with kids and demanding that she leave. After a couple minutes of the verbal battle, a school official intervened and is seen on video escorting the woman off campus.
Today, the mother tells Action 10 News that she confronted the group because they are allegedly bullying her daughter on campus and online. She says she has decided to pull her daughter out of school and is now considering homeschooling her. The mother also says that she had been arrested on Monday after an altercation with another parent.
Today CCISD released a statement about the incident:
On April 2, a Cunningham middle school parent came to the campus and began arguing with a group of students using loud threatening and profane language which compromised the safety and wellbeing of students and staff. She was escorted to the office by a staff member. The principal and safety officer spoke with the parent and eventually escorted her off campus.
The Student-Parent Handbook states that parents must report to the office and be identified prior to contacting students. Persons that are not properly identified will be asked to leave the campus and in some cases may be subject to receiving a criminal trespass warning prohibiting entrance to the campus. Parents should never approach other students.
We take the safety and security of our schools very seriously and bullying in not tolerated. We cannot comment on individual cases but all bullying reports are investigated. We encourage those with concerns to file a bully report online or report the incident to school or district administration.
