Principal regrets making students view excrement

COLORADO SPRINGS ” A Colorado Springs elementary school principal has apologized for making students look inside a bag of human feces and urine.

Peyton Elementary Principal Michael Auclaire says he wanted to make a point to the students because someone had been leaving human waste on the floor and toilet seats in a girl’s lavatory.

Some parents complained Auclaire’s actions were inappropriate and created a health risk.

Auclaire says he has apologized in person to the students and by letter to their parents. He says he realizes it was “not the best thing to do.”

Auclaire says the students were given janitorial gloves to wear before holding the bag and were told to wash their hands afterward.

The incident took place Monday and Auclaire apologized Tuesday.
