I have a student this year who I just don't know how to help. She is very dirty every day. I would guess her clothes haven't been washed in over a month. I have provided her a toothbrush and toothpaste to use at school and I comb her hair for her in the mornings but there's not much else I can do at school. We have a district social worker who has been contacted but the address we have on file isn't accurate and we think the family is homeless so the social worker has no where to go to make a visit. The nurse is our CPS contact and she says that CPS won't make a visit for a dirty child that it's not neglect!! I called mom to discuss my concerns over the other students who are now making observations about this filth and mom blamed it on the child saying she gets dirty on the playground!!! SO NOT TRUE. I have 20 kindergartners who all play in sand on the playground every day and no one is dirty like this. I brought home a little sweater and jacket that she left in the classroom to wash. After half a bottle of Zout stain remover and 2 cycles through the washer they were both still stained. Anyone have suggestions about what I can do for this family? It breaks my heart.
