Parent Dressed As Easter Bunny Passed Out Condoms At Elementary School, District Says

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Independent School District is reassessing safety protocols after a parent dressed as an Easter Bunny allegedly distributed Easter eggs on the campus of Gullett Elementary School.

Some of the eggs contained candy, but others contained unopened condoms, according to a letter sent to the Gullett families.

The relative was asked to leave, but then moved onto a public sidewalk and continued donating eggs, the district told KXAN.

“We are working to review our security protocols to ensure this does not happen again,” an AISD spokesperson said. “It was an incredibly negligent and inappropriate action by a parent.”

In a letter to parents, Gullett Elementary School principal Tammy Thompson said the event was neither planned nor sanctioned by the school. The letter says officials spoke with the parent about the “inappropriate nature of their activity.”

Currently, the youngest students at Austin ISD aren’t even learning anything about “human sexuality and responsibility.” K-2 classes are on hold as the district works to revise classes based on recent legislation.

Austin ISD is in the process of updating its curriculum on human sexuality and responsibility as a whole. The district’s curriculum provides information and skill development for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Teaching is given each year in November and December for primary and secondary school students.
