The Denver Public School District is sending home student health reports to keep parents informed in an effort to combat the problem of childhood obesity. Some parents are upset that their children are traumatized when the messages are sent home with the children and the children read the messages.

The school district says that it saves money when it does not mail or use other methods of delivery to send the messages to parents.
