Longview, TX — A pre-kindergarten aide at Kilgore Heights Elementary has been fired following an Oct. 2 injury to a 4-year-old boy, interim Superintendent Dennis Williams reported Tuesday.
Williams verified reports that the student was injured when the aide pulled the child’s leg, causing him to fall and hit his head on a shelf. The boy was taken to the school nurse, and his parents were notified, Williams said.
“The aide is no longer with the district,” Williams said. “The police, they are still conducting their investigation. And (Child Protective Services), they are conducting their investigation. And, we at the school, conducted our investigation and that person is no longer working for the district.”
