ROSENBERG, Texas (FOX 26) - Belynda Billings, the principal at Bowie Elementary School in the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District, sent the following email message to parents of students on Wednesday afternoon:
I wanted you to be aware of an incident that occurred at Bowie Elementary.
A student reported that a substitute teacher slapped her and stepped on her foot.
The substitute was immediately removed from the classroom, pending an investigation.
Please know if any of these allegations are found to be true, they are absolutely out of line and will not be tolerated at Bowie Elementary or Lamar CISD.
The safety of students and staff will always be our first concern.
If you have any questions about this incident, please do not hesitate to contact me at 832-223-1200.
