Parents: NY teacher note said kids were ‘dirty’

BUFFALO, N.Y. – A New York teacher could be in hot water after sending a note home with her pre-kindergarten students saying some of them were showing up to school so dirty she didn’t want to touch them.

Parents say the handwritten note was sent home by a teacher at the Buffalo School District’s Build Academy. The Nov. 14 letter says several of the 3- and 4-year-old children “also give off unpleasant smells.”

The letter also requests the signatures of parent and child to confirm it was received.

The Buffalo News reports the school board concluded the teacher should face disciplinary action.

Kimberly Wells says she was shocked by the letter her granddaughter brought home. She says it made the girl ask if her teacher thinks she stinks.
