Jimmy Hoffmeyer Daughter
Hoffmeyer said in an interview with the Associated Press Jurnee was crying and afraid to get into trouble when she came home from school after a teacher cut her hair.
“She was crying,” Hoffmeyer said. “She was afraid of getting in trouble for getting her hair cut.”
“I asked what happened and said ‘I thought I told you no child should ever cut your hair,’” he continued. “She said ‘but dad, it was the teacher.’ The teacher cut her hair to even it out.”
He told WAVE 3 his daughter was embarrassed to go to school after the teacher cut her hair.
“After that teacher cut her hair, she was so embarrassed, so embarrassed that she had to go back to class like that,” Hoffmeyer said.
Hoffmeyer posted on Facebook April 9, 2021, saying he wished he could say more publicly but that he will post updates in the future. The post said he was “feeling exhausted.”
“I know alot of yall want to kno more but this is all I can say at the moment but will update when I can…just want to keep ppl aware in the mean time,” he wrote.
Hoffmeyer told the Associated Press that the school has not done enough for his daughter in response to the incident. After another student cut Jurnee’s hair on the bus, he said the school told him they would talk to the other girl’s parents.
The school called him and “said the little girl stole the scissors off the teacher’s desk, and they were going to talk to the parents and deal with it accordingly,” he told the AP.
The most that could be done to reprimand the library teacher, Hoffmeyer says the principal told him, was placing a note in her work file. The teacher acknowledged she should not have cut Jurnee’s hair, he said, and asked how to “make it go away.”
“She said she didn’t have the authority to do anything. She kept asking me what she could do to make it go away,” Hoffmeyer said.
About one week after the incident, following the school district’s spring break, the superintendent called him, he told the AP. Her offer was to have “I’m sorry” cards mailed to the family.
“I got mad and hung up,” Hoffmeyer said.
He also filed an incident report with the Mount Pleasant police department but said on Monday he had not been contacted for a follow-up.
Hoffmeyer Said ‘I’m Not One to Try to Make Things About Race’
Hoffmeyer is biracial, and his wife, Jurnee’s mom, is white. Both the teacher and the student who cut Jurnee’s hair are white, according to the Associated Press.
Once Jurnee’s story reached us, we leaned in to help get #JusticeForJurnee. We are currently seeking a civil rights attorney for the Hoffmeyer family and have sent formal requests to the district for evidence from the incident. @TheBWSTimeshttps://t.co/phx0XFHIIE

“I’m not one to try to make things about race,” he said. “I’ve pretty much grown up with only white people, myself.”
He told WAVE 3 he did not expect serious consequences for the student but said he thought the teacher should at least take responsibility, even if she had good intentions.
“Our kind of hair, you can’t just wet down and cut it because, and that’s when I feel like they should have, even if they were trying to do it in the kindest of their heart, once they saw the outcome, they should have been like, ‘Yeah, we messed up,’” he said. “We should probably call him and let him know what just happened.”
