AvaLynn informed her mum Lacey that she was assaulted by another student: that she was kicked repeatedly in the face until she fell off of the slide on the school's playground. But the school informed Lacey that there were no teachers present when the incident occurred, and because of that, no one could prove whether or not another student had harmed Ava. That there had been an accident, no other students were involved, Ava got injured, they gave her medical treatment and that was as much as they could do.
Lacey says she rushed Ava to the family pediatrician, who burst into tears upon seeing the Ava's battered visage. Fortunately, the doctor determined that it is unlikely that Ava would have any permanent physical damage. Mental and emotional damage is another story altogether.
The school basically claims that Ava injured herself and the local police department claims that there has been no criminal act. So Lacey and her family have turned to the public to seek justice. Scroll down to see more photos.
