Parents Blast ‘Going Away Party’ for Guiding Hands School as Inappropriate
EL DORADO HILLS -- Some parents are outraged an El Dorado Hills school for kids with special needs is holding a "going away party" after one of its own students died after being restrained by staff. Guiding Hands was shut down by the state after the death of 13-year-old Max Benson. "The fact that they’re going to throw a party to mourn a school closing, rather than to mourn the loss of a child," former Guiding Hands parent Melissa Lasater said.
