A Cedar Valley Elementary student soiled herself in the classroom after a substitute teacher would not allow her to use the restroom, Killeen Independent School District Chief Communications Officer Terry Abbott said. 

Abbott said the incident is a violation of the district's standards and that the teacher will be reprimanded. The teacher will not be allowed to teach in that classroom for the remainder of the school year. 

Abbott said allegations of bullying by the substitute and other students are not true. 

School officials have met with the student's parent and apologized for the situation. 

The district's entire statement:

On Monday, a Cedar Valley student did soil herself in the classroom after she was not allowed by a substitute teacher to go to the restroom. This does indeed violate our standards. The substitute teacher will be reprimanded and not allowed to teach in that classroom for the remainder of the school year. The other allegations about bullying by the substitute and other students are not true. The school already has interviewed other students in the classroom at the time of this event, and all of them confirmed there was no such bullying. The school leadership already has met with the parent and apologized that the child was not allowed to go to the restroom. The school leadership moved very quickly in this case to deal with the issue and to resolve the parent’s concerns.
