on M 5/2/ 22. As I stated. My 11 year old African American daughter walked off school property during dismissal /departure while in the care of Whetstone Elementary Staff. She walked 1.1 mile from her school without the faculty being aware. When asked, “How This Could’ve Happen.” The response was horrifying. As parents we hoped for a rational explanation but even the Principle could not explain. We were told there will be a follow up within 48hrs and here it is a week later. We deserve better than to be treated as if this situation is of no importance (because the assumption is that black don’t care about the child’s well-being) so let’s just sweep it under the rug is on full display.. Here we are two weeks later still seeking answers but no one seems to care enough to provide us with a peace of mind that the Montgomery County Public School System will not fail us and that its a safe space where our child would be cared for and treated humanely.

I reached out to each of these individuals: Principle, Principal Supervisor, Child Protective Services, Student Welfare and Safety and the Assistant Superintendent Office. By the time this email reaches your office we’ll be headed into week three without any answers.

We the parents would appreciate it if MCPS show us a minuscule of respect and act as if MCPS set the standard and that the individuals responsible for this egregious breach of trust be held accountable for the lack thereof their involvement.
