HEAVENER (KFSM) -- Shawnna Daniels said her 9-year-old son Brayden came home from school and complained about his arms hurting.

"He came home and I told him, 'I need you to carry your bag to your room,'" Daniels said. "He started to pick up his bag and started bawling. I said, 'Brayden what's wrong with you?'"

She said that is when her 9-year-old told her he had fallen off of a slide during his day at Heavener School.

"He said, 'I bloodied my nose and chipped my tooth,'" she said.

She said he was sent to the school nurse's office but she never received a phone call from the school.

"They should have at least notified me," Daniels said.

Daniels said her son will wear arm casts for up to eight weeks and she has now enrolled her children in a charter school.
