A little girl from Mississippi named AvaLynn came home from school with shocking injuries all over her face one day, and little AvaLynn’s mother is demanding justice.
According to The Epoch Times, the girl was allegedly severely beaten by another student, but the school is saying that AvaLynn got those injuries while playing on the school’s playground.
Her mother has created a Facebook page to get justice for her daughter, titling it “Justice For AvaLynn,” and sharing pictures of AvaLynn’s injuries , which include cuts on her face, and two huge black eyes.
Her mother, Lacey Harris, wrote on the page:
“As much as my heart is broken for my daughter, I am also amazed by the outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, Oasis church family and our community. Thank you so much for your concern, kind words, prayers, thoughts, shares, and donation. We ask that you continue these kind gestures.”
On Friday, a GoFundMe page was created in honor AvaLynn as well, and it has already raised $1,000.
Meanwhile, the Pascagoula School District released a statement on the matter, telling the public:
“A student was injured while playing on the playground at Arlington Elementary School Tuesday afternoon. School officials responded to the situation. The parent was contacted and the student received medical treatment. No other children were involved in the incident. The Pascagoula School District remains committed to the safety of all its students,”
A member of the police department also told the public in a statement:
“The mother alleges another child kicked her child on the slide. Right now, there’s no indication something criminal took place. I have spoken with school security and an assistant superintendent is investigating the matter.”
We keeping AvaLynn in our prayers.
