A parent who slipped on ice outside East Heights Early Childhood Center is suing the Lawrence school district.
In the lawsuit, filed in Douglas County District Court, Barry Carver claims he suffered permanent injuries when he fell Jan. 16 in the school's parking lot while dropping off his child.
Carver is seeking more than $300,000 in damages.
The lawsuit claims the district was negligent for failing to keep the grounds clear. Carver also states the district created a nuisance by holding school during dangerous weather conditions.
Spokeswoman Julie Boyle said the school district could not comment on pending litigation.
