Richmond County Mom Banned from Child's School

Richmond County, GA -

News Channel 6's Tyrone McCoy asks McBean Elementary Principal, Janina Dallas "was the no trespass order issued because of the facebook post? Principal: yes it was."

Tanya Mount says the post of her weapons permit was on her private Facebook page. McBean Elementary School Principal Janina Dallas says the order was a preventative measure.

"It is my duty  and responsibility as the principal of this school to ensure the safety and security of all of our faculty, staff and students," explains Principal Dallas.

A plan Tanya Mount agrees with.  But she says she didn't make a threat.

She says "I'm not a criminal, I've never been to jail, I've never been arrested. I was like what is this for."

Principal Dallas says several PTO members pointed out instances where Mount would disrupt classes and where Mount said she wouldn't let anybody bother her daughter

The principal says with the rash of school shootings, coupled with Mount's comments and the permit, it was cause for alarm.

She adds "there have been a number of school shootings in our country. And inevitably, people will say they saw signs and things of that nature after the fact."

Even with that, Mount says, this type of action should be taken across the board.

Mount tells News Channel 6's Tyrone McCoy "if that is the case, then why just single me out? Why not put a bulletin that says attention parents, if you have a concealed weapons permit, please don't come to the school."'

Mount's daughter has since transferred to another elementary school in the district and she's gotten her PTO volunteer card back.
