SAN ANTONIO -- Parents of an 11-year-old girl say they want more to be done after another student allegedly threatened to kill their daughter with a hammer. Burrell and Cheryl Parmers say they're upset that the 6th grade boy who was arrested for bringing the hammer to Lopez Middle School back in November could return to school soon.
News 4 WOAI spoke exclusively with the parents last month. The Parmers say their daughter is also a 6th grader at the school in the North East Independent School District. The boy was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats, but the Parmers's daughter never saw a hammer. The Parmers say regardless the student who brought the hammer shouldn't be allowed to return to class so soon.
The Parmers addressed the North East Independent School Board Monday night. The Parmers handed board members a letter, and were allotted three minutes to speak during public comment.
NEISD says because of privacy issues the district can't say when the student would be able to return to school. The district does say once a punishment is served a student has the right to an education.
The Parmers will be meeting with the school principal Tuesday to further discuss the situation.
