WAUPUN — A mother whose son was put in a box at school is demanding an apology from the school and the removal of the box.
Mandy Rennhack said her autistic son was put into a plywood 5 by 7 foot box March 27.
"The door was locked and there was no ventilation," she said. "The school said he was having a meltdown, but he wasn't. He was not following directions, and they put him in the box for discipline, not because he was a risk to himself or others."
