PASCAGOULA, Miss. The Pascagoula School District has decided to bring in more cameras to its elementary school campuses after a kindergartner was hurt on the playground last week.
“By taking this proactive measure, we want to provide parents with another safeguard in place while their children are at recess,” said district leaders in a news release. “The cameras should help provide the district with a visual record of incidents that occur on school playgrounds.”
AvaLynn Harris fell from a piece of playground equipment at Arlington Elementary August 26. While her family claimed she was kicked in the face by another student until she fell, the district maintained that no other students were involved.
Harris’ mom filed a report with the Pascagoula Police Department two days after the incident. Investigators said Wednesday afternoon that they found no evidence of criminal activity.
