Parents protest for PS/MS 194 principal to be retrained or removed

Outraged parents with kids at PS/MS 194 are calling for the retraining or removal of the school's principal.

Parents say that their children are not given enough time to eat lunch, can only drink from school water fountains and can't use the bathroom at the start and end of the school day.

News 12 The Bronx reached out to Principal Rosie Sifuentes-Rosado, who declined to comment.

The school's parent coordinator, Lois Lombardi, says students have 45-minute lunch periods. She says water bottles are forbidden because in past years students would freeze them and use them as weapons. She also says that there is no official rule prohibiting bathroom use.
