School sends home obesity notices with students, parent upset

Dear Parent:

We are sending this letter home with your child in order to inform you that he/she is a fatty fat fatty. When he/she gets her school photo done it will have to be an aerial view. He/she is so fat that he/she walked by the teacher at the chalkboard and the rest of the class missed the lesson. We are concerned your child is breaking several dozen zoning laws. We suggest you sop feeding your child like you are raising livestock and if not, possibly this summer he/she can make a few extra dollars selling shade. Thank you.

In an effort to combat the problem of childhood obesity, the Denver Public School District is sending home student health reports to keep parents informed. However, one parent says it should not have been sent home in her daughter's backpack because she read it.

Do fat people really not know they are fat? Is it a secret to them? Look I'd rather have my child's feelings hurt by a letter sent home with good lintention than have to suffer years of taunts and teases from the other children at school.

"The part that upset her the most as she started reading it, there it stated that she was overweight and she started to cry saying, 'Mom, that school tells me I'm fat.' So, it was very heart wrenching," said Flaurette Martinez.

It's not just the school kid. If you're overweight it's not like having diabetes or cancer which can't been seen physically. Everyone knows you're fat. It may be in bad taste to point it out but fat kids are going to grow up to be fat adults and guess what, people are going to point it out here and there during that transition. Maybe it's better that the kids feelings get hurt early enough to start paying attention to their weight before they get older and it becomes a serious health problem. I'd trade a few days of embarassment over years of health problems anyday.

Her daughter Isabel was sent home from the Centennial K-8 School on Monday with the health notice. It listed her height, weight and body mass index – a measure of body fat. Underneath the listing it had a marking next to the status "overweight."

Can't hide the truth. If that letter never came home, your kid would still be overweight.

"My daughter is big boned," said Martinez.

Ladies and gentlemen, denial. This is exactly why your daughter is a fatty. It's more your fault than hers.
