The incident happened yesterday. KRIS 6 News has chosen not to identify the woman because she hasn’t been charged at this time.

The woman shouted and cursed at a group of girls and they did the same. The mother tells KRIS 6 News she went to the school to confront the group because she says they were bullying her daughter on campus and online.

The altercation lasted more than a minute before two school officials interceded and escorted the woman away.

The video was posted on Facebook around 6 p.m. Wednesday. It has been viewed more than 49,000 times and shared by more than 900 Facebook users as of Thursday afternoon.

C.C..I.S.D. Police Chief Kirby Warnke tells KRIS 6 News the district has banned that parent from C.C.I.S.D. property.

Meanwhile, that mother tells us she has decided to pull her daughter out of Cunningham Middle School and is considering homeschooling her.

The mother also tells KRIS 6 News that she was arrested on Monday after an altercation with another parent.

Meanwhile, C.C.I.S.D. released a statement regarding yesterday’s incident.

“On April 3, a Cunningham middle school parent came to the campus and began arguing with a group of students using loud threating and profane language which compromised the safety and well being of students and staff. She was escorted to the office by a staff member.  The principal and safety officer spoke with the parent and eventually escorted her off campus.

The Student-Parent Handbook states that parents must report to the office and be identified prior to contacting students.  Persons that are not properly identified will be asked to leave the campus and in some cases may be subject to receiving a criminal trespass warning prohibiting entrance to the campus.  Parents should never approach other students.

We take the safety and security of our schools very seriously and bullying in not tolerated.  We cannot comment on individual cases but all bullying reports are investigated.  We encourage those with concerns to file a bully report online or report the incident to school or district administration.”
