Some parents, whose children attend Dr. Pablo Perez Elementary, were kicked off school grounds after they were trying to meet with the school principal.
"As parents we don't know what's happening inside in school we're not allowed to walk our kids to school, we're not allowed to visit them and now yesterday we were asking for an appointment, we were treated like criminals." Those were the feelings of some kindergarten parents after they were kicked out of school by police as they were trying to meet with the principal .
"She's been canceling all of the appointments and when we finally had an appointment we had something that came up and when I asked her to reschedule it she said she could reschedule it. She had not time to talk to us and all we want is to present to the principal that we would like to have a graduation ceremony for kinder and the problem is that base on her, her answer was this is her school and she'll do in this school what ever she wants."
The parents we spoke to say if they were treated that way, they question how the principal may be treating students at the school. The McAllen school district is currently looking into the matter and will continue to investigate the claims from the parents.
