(PIX11) — A Staten Island first grader was tossed out of her private school after she suffered a gash to her head in the classroom—and mom pointed out her safety concerns.

It all happened at St. John Villa Academy last week. What’s worse, with no school nurse on hand the front office personnel cleaned up the bleeding cut with a Clorox wipe.

Little Ksenya told us about the scary morning in class. “I was crying. I could not stop because it was so painful.” The little girl described how she was walking to the trash can in her classroom, and when she bent down to toss away her papers, her head bumped into a sharp corner on a shelf and started bleeding.
