A family in Spring ISD is frustrated and asking for answers after their 6 year old daughter came home with hickey’s on her neck.
The mother, Brittany Herrera says her daughter Mia has been a victim of excessive bullying at Gloria Marshall Elementary.
Herrera says Mia’s been being bullied since day one and the school district has failed to do anything to protect her.
Herrera, who was lost for words, says she picked her daughter up from school recently with a lump on her forehead.
“She came back with a huge knot on her head and said that another little girl had literally pushed her against a wall.”
A few weeks later Herrera says her daughter came home with hickey’s on her neck.
Mia told her mom that during a bathroom break, three girls were sent inside together.
“She told me, the girl got on top of me, and she started biting me. I think she says ‘biting’ because basically my kids don’t know what hickeys are, and they were clearly hickeys.”
Herrera asked the school to separate her daughter from her attackers. Instead, the school had her in the same classroom with them for three months.
Eventually, Herrera and her daughter met with the principal. A police report was filed with a Spring ISD officer.
She asked the officer was this a typical bullying case. The officer replied no this is sexual assault. If the attacker was 10 we would be making an arrest.
Spring ISD officials said one of the girls has since been transferred to a different elementary and protocol was followed.
