Florida elementary school bans breastfeeding mom from campus

November 7, 2014 by Associated Press

NICEVILLE, Fla. – A 25-year-old Florida Panhandle woman was issued a trespass warning after a disagreement with an elementary school principal about the way she was breastfeeding her young daughter on campus.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reports Meagan Shoemaker was at Plew Elementary School in Niceville on Wednesday for her niece’s weekly fitness event.

Principal Carolyn McAllister talked to Shoemaker after receiving a complaint from another parent, asking her to use discretion. Shoemaker says she was being discreet, putting a barrier between herself and the students.

McAllister says Shoemaker became “belligerent” when she stopped by the office a short time later. Shoemaker says she wasn’t hostile.

The principal and a resource officer gave her the trespassing warning which bars her from entering school grounds for the rest of the school year.
