Healthy school group rallies for kids

April 12, 2011 • Local News

Amanda Dawkins rallies with Roswell Healthy Schools Support Group, at Pioneer Plaza on Monday.

Roswell Healthy Schools Support Group rallied for two hours at Pioneer Plaza, in conjunction with National Healthy Schools Day on Monday.

“This is our first year (doing this),” Nicole Vargas, RHSSG founder, said.“We hope to implement this … to bring awareness to healthy schools and to our children’s health.”

The group, founded by Vargas, claims their children aquired chronic inflammatory response syndrome, as a result of mold from water damaged buildings throughout the Roswell Independent School District. RHSSG seeks to get “sick kids” out of local schools and “get them educated with district-supplied homebound instruction.”

Not everyone in the community is on board with RHSSG’s mission. Roswell Login to read more

    From what I understand, you have to have a certain gene that will let you get black mold poisoning. Not everyone will get sick where there is black mold. What is a persons life worth? Testing should be done and the problem corrected.. If it is all about the money, get over it. Lives are precious and our children and grandchildren should not be robbed of their school years because of a problem that can be fixed.
    Our time on this earth is too short for it to be one of sickness.
