& # 39; I was amazed. I was so shocked that I just took the photo because I didn't believe what I saw & Daniel 39 told Fox.
The photo shows her son standing in the toilet next to the desk.
She said that Lucas also got a camping mat in case he wanted to take a nap on the bathroom floor.
Luke said that he was & # 39; sad, stressed, ashamed & # 39; felt.
& # 39; I had something like this how does this happen? How am I in the bathroom? Why? & # 39; he told the station.
Danielle said she then interviewed the teacher and asked if there was another option that the teacher reportedly said no to.
A Bellingham Public Schools spokeswoman said administrators have been informed of the situation at Whatcom Middle School and that they will continue to investigate the incident
& # 39; It is not a suitable place for anyone, but especially for Lucas with his PANDAS condition, he cannot be close to bacteria, & # 39; Goodwin said.
PANDAS is an abbreviation for autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders in children associated with streptococcal infections, a neurological and psychiatric disorder where symptoms are caused or worsened by a streptococcal infection.
A Bellingham Public Schools spokeswoman said administrators were notified of the situation and they & # 39; took immediate steps to remove the desk depicted in the photo and ensure that this space is not being used as a learning space & # 39 ;.
The spokeswoman said the school will continue to investigate the incident.
