Mother: School Sent Home Letter Saying 1st Grader Was Overweight
The mother of a first grader in Florida is furious after the little girl was sent home with a letter which suggested she was overweight.
The school nurse claimed that Charley Cacdec’s body mass index is too high and could cause health problems.
"From the results of this test, it is suggested that your child's health be examined by a physician, particularly as it relates to the problem suggested by the screening. A problem such as this that goes uncorrected or untreated can severely affect both the health and academic performance of your child,” the letter said.
The little girl asked her mother if she was fat after reading the letter.
Charley’s mother says her daughter is very active and that her pediatrician has always given her a clean bill of health.
