HURON, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota superintendent is apologizing after learning a student at a middle school was denied breakfast as a form of discipline.
Huron Superintendent Terry Nebelsick says a complaint about the incident was made to the South Dakota Department of Education after the incident was shared on social media.
Nebelsick, posting on Facebook, says a staff member at Huron Middle School violated district policy last week by denying the child breakfast because the student was misbehaving.
Deputy Education Secretary Mary Stadick Smith tells the Argus Leader her department was in touch with school district officials and is satisfied they understood denying food was improper.
