Saginaw mother frustrated with school after daughter tests positive for COVID-19

SAGINAW, Michigan (WJRT) — A Mid-Michigan mom says she’s frustrated with the Bridgeport-Spaulding Community School District now that she and her daughter have tested positive for COVID-19.

“You don’t want to end up in the hospital. This is a very serious illness and I take it very seriously,” Angie Galvan said.

Galvan is speaking out in hopes of protecting other families from exposure to the virus.

Galvan’s daughter attended Thomas White Elementary in Bridgeport.

After testing positive for COVID, she withdrew her daughter from the district. She believes the Bridgeport Community School district is not handling COVID-19 safety protocols properly.

“I can’t drop her off there anymore… I’m now looking for other schools because my daughter isn’t safe there. It’s one thing after another and I just want parents to talk to their kids,” she said.

In the fight against the virus, Galvan is warning parents to have a conversation with their children to continue applying COVID-19 safety protocols.

“It’s very important that all children at this age learn to wash their hands,” Galvan added.

Bridgeport-Spaulding Community School District Superintendent Mark Whelton says they are aware of the concerns some parents have.

Whelton says they have extensive COVID-19 safety procedures in place and are proud to have only about 40 COVID-19 cases in the district this year.
