A family is suing a school district in the far southwest suburbs claiming their 10-year-old daughter was forced to urinate in a cup on a moving school bus.
The lawsuit, filed in Cook County. alleges three counts of emotional distress stemming from an incident on January 10th of last year. The girl’s 6th grade class from Wilmington Middle School was on a bus returning from a field trip to see a Chicago Wolves hockey game.
According to the lawsuit, the girl asked to go to the bathroom repeatedly, but the teachers and bus driver wouldn’t let her.
Instead, while the bus was driving along the highway, they made her come to the front of the bus, step down into the staircase, and urinate in a cup.
Shortly after, the bus pulled over at the next exit, the girl was asked to step off the bus and throw the cup of urine out, while dozens of her classmates looked on.
The superintendent released a statement today that reads: “As a school district we don’t feel we have done anything wrong, it’s more so the bus company. Our attorneys are currently dealing with the situation.”
