SAN ANTONIO -- What would you think if you were told your child needed a doctor's note for water? That's what one mom says her daughter was told after bringing a water bottle to Harris Middle School.
Stacey Rodriguez says her daughter took a water bottle to school because her medication makes her thirsty. But a school nurse told her water bottles violate school policy and she'd have to get a doctor's note.
North East Independent School District says the policy was put in place to prevent students from hitting each other with the bottles and to prevent students from sneaking in alcohol.
The policy is only for middle and high school students. Elementary school students in the district can bring water bottles to school.
