A parent dressed up as the Easter Bunny and handed out eggs with condoms inside to children at an elementary school in Austin, Texas.
On Thursday, a parent dressed as the Easter Bunny visited the Gullett Elementary School campus. The unnamed parent handed out plastic Easter eggs to the school children. Some of those eggs contained candy, but others had unopened condoms inside, according to the school.
The Austin Independent School District told KTBC that school staff asked the parent to leave the premises. The parent left the school, but proceeded to hand out condom-filled eggs from a public sidewalk. The Austin ISD called the incident "an incredibly careless and inappropriate action."
Gullett Elementary School Principal Tammy Thompson sent a letter to parents stressing that the disturbance was "not a planned event, nor sanctioned by the school." Thompson added, "We have spoken with the parent about the inappropriate nature of their activity."
The district said it was working with the Austin ISD Police Department on possible repercussions for the parent who handed out condoms to students.
“We are working to review our safety protocols to ensure this does not happen again,” an AISD spokesperson told KXAN. "It was an incredibly careless and inappropriate action of a parent."
Below is the full letter to parents from Gullett Elementary School Principal Tammy Thompson:
