The father of a student reported to the principal that hired contractors were replacing the windows in the school. When the contractors went to lunch, they left a tray of cement up in the windowsill. During the 3rd-grade lunch period, the students were instructed to go and wash their hands. Instead, [the man’s son] detoured, going to where the cement was and began putting cement on his arms and hands. A female teacher observed the student. She escorted him to the nurse’s office and instructed him to wash his hands and arms off. The father is stating that his concern is a possibility that the cement could cause damage to his son, if not now, maybe 20 years from now. The father said it could affect his son’s brain. The father stated he’s going to sue the school system, because his son deserves a college education. MPD not notified.
