Need a tissue? School mocks 'whiners' in email to parents
WILMINGTON, Del. - A Delaware school district has apologized after a staff member inadvertently sent parents a sarcastic "Hurt Feelings Report" that makes fun of "whiners."
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the form is structured like a bullying report and was attached to an email sent Wednesday to parents at Wilmington's Lombardy Elementary School for an upcoming "Exercise Your Brain Day" event.
Included on the form are boxes for "whiner's name" and "type of whine used," as well as responses for "Did you require a 'tissue' for tears" and "I want my mommy."
Brandywine School District spokeswoman Alexis Andrianopoulos apologized for the email, saying in a statement that an unidentified staff member accidentally attached the wrong form. She says the form didn't come from the school or the school district.
