A parent reportedly dressed up as the Easter Bunny and handed out plastic eggs with condoms in them to students at a Texas elementary school, Fox7 Austin reports. In a letter to other parents on Thursday, Gullett Elementary School Principal Tammy Thompson insisted that the school knew nothing about the stunt and was not involved. However, that’s done little to quell the anger surrounding the incident.
- Not all of the Easter eggs contained condoms. As Thompson revealed, some of the eggs were full of Easter candy instead. “This afternoon during dismissal, a Gullett parent visited campus dressed as the Easter Bunny and handed out plastic eggs. Some of those eggs contained candy, and some students were also given unopened condoms,” she wrote. “Please know that this was not a planned event, nor sanctioned by the school, and we have spoken with the parent about the inappropriate nature of their activity. We value parent participation and always request that you work with campus staff to best support our students.”
- The guilty parent didn’t stick around long. School authorities say that they requested the parent leave school grounds immediately and they complied. However, they then continued handing out the eggs from a public sidewalk.
- The Austin Independent School District is updating its “safety protocols.” An AISD spokesperson told KXAN that they would ensure nothing like this would be able to happen again. “We are working to review our safety protocols to ensure this does not happen again,” the spokesperson said. “It was an incredibly careless and inappropriate action of a parent.”
- It’s unclear if any action is being taken against the guilty parent. However, currently, it seems as if the incident is being forgotten and no further action will be taken. It’s also unclear what motivated the parent to do this in the first place.
