“We are happy to share that Kaylee is breathing on her own, remains stable, and the best news so far is that we have been moved out of the ICU. We are truly blessed by the outpouring of support and your prayers. It means so much to us!” the update posted on her GoFundMe page read.

“Hazelwood owes the parents of the district and the entire community an explanation as to what role these radical programs and safety failures played here,” Bailey’s staff said to Fox News Digital, emphasizing that this is the focus of the investigation.

Bailey sent a letter to Hazelwood School District Superintendent Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart in which he stated that he was disturbed to see that the school district had ignored long-standing Missouri law and elevated political narrative above student safety.  (hazelwoodschools.org/Google Maps)
