A New Castle mom said she's upset with how her daughter's school responded after the 6-year-old girl wandered away from the building last week.
Jamie Smith said her daughter, Brianna DeMarco, wears braces on her legs and is unable to speak due to a disability.
Smith told Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewicz that a teacher at West Side Primary school told Brianna to look outside and see if her mom was there to pick her up from school. Smith claims her daughter then walked away from the school and was found about 30 minutes later by a school nurse.
Smith admitted that she was late picking her daughter up on Friday, but said the school should have done a better job watching her daughter.
“I asked for my daughter and they said they let her go with the walkers. It was an all-out search for her,” Smith said.
Smith said she spoke to the school's principal, Carmen Nocera, on Monday who told her that the school will make sure it doesn't happen again.
"It was very unfortunate that this happened, and steps have been made to re-evaluate the dismissal process," Nocera said.
Family members said they're upset with how the situation was handled and want the school to take action to make sure a similar situation doesn't happen to another child.
"She can't tell someone her name. She can't even ask for help, and she was out there alone," Smith said.
Smith told Marcinkiewicz that she's not sending her daughter back to the school.
