As people are finally preparing to send their kids back to school, some parents in Seattle were shocked to learn that some schools have been overrun with homeless tent camps.
It’s just one more setback in a year that has been made crazy by the pandemic and associated lock downs.
FOX News reports:
Seattle parents outraged as students set to return to school next to homeless camps
Seattle parents told Fox News’ Lawrence Jones that they are outraged and concerned as their children are starting to return to school for in-person learning this month while Seattle Public Schools grapples with the presence of homeless encampments on the campuses of two schools.
Jones, who visited Seattle recently, noted on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that two Seattle schools, Edmond S Meany Middle School and Broadview Thomson K-8, are inundated with homeless encampments. Students are set to return following a year of remote classes amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Fox Nation host pointed out that he witnessed drugs and needles “everywhere.”
“You would think government has a responsibility to keep folks safe [and] would get them out of the area and put them in a safe area where they’re not around kids,” Jones said on “Fox & Friends.”
“Parents have just had enough,” Jones added.
