School investigating after student 'made cookies with grandmother's ashes and handed them out in class'

No comments
A school has launched an investigation and called in the police amid claims a student made cookies with her dead grandmother's ashes.
Shocked staff and fellow students were horrified when the female student told them what they had been eating at the school in California.
Fox40 reports the inquiries started when one student arrived home in the town of Davis and told his parents about the worrying claims the girl made.
The news station said the family were left shocked and upset and called the school.
The male student, who is not being named, told the channel the girl was openly saying she had brought cookies to school baked with her grandmother’s ashes.
She was then passing them around.
"This girl is going around telling everyone, basically at this point, that she had brought in these cookies to school with human ashes in them," said the Da Vinci Charter Academy High School student who spoke anonymously to FOX40.
The family is furious that the school education district had not told parents anything about the alleged incident.
The mother told the channel: "It blew my mind. I was really repulsed and I was upset that I wasn’t even notified."
She said the school administrators questioned her son, fearing he may have eaten one of the cookies.
The boy says that after he was questioned, he was asked to submit a statement about what happened and sign it.
"After that he told me not to tell anyone," the boy told FOX40.
The channel said the student's mother met with Da Vinci Charter Academy Principal Tyler Millsap to demanded a copy of the statement her son was asked to sign.
The teenager’s dad went on: "The district seems to be a little bit more concerned about protecting themselves than protecting their students."
The district sent a statement to the channel saying: "While we cannot comment on confidential student matters, I can tell you that the physical and social-emotional safety of our students is our first priority.
“We take all allegations of wrongdoing seriously and we conduct thorough investigations and involve the police when appropriate. When wrongdoing is found to have occurred, disciplinary measures are applied and at the same time measures are taken to repair the harm within the community.
“This case has been particularly challenging and we have responded appropriately and in the most respectful and dignified way possible."
Davis Police Lt. Doroshov confirmed to the station that they are investigating the incident at Da Vinci Charter Academy High School.
