While a trans teacher’s decision to wear large prosthetic breasts and a blonde wig in front of high school seniors doesn’t break any rules, the same does not apply to her photographing the teacher, she said Halton District School Board.

Controversial Oakville Trafalgar High School store teacher Kayla Lemieux has taken her now world-famous blonde wig, shorts and prosthetic breasts into several schools’ classrooms.

However, students were warned not to take a picture or video. Some parents say students “have been threatened with suspension if they try to take pictures of Lemieux”.

But some took the risk and shot a video anyway.

Video taken last week at dr Frank J. Hayden Secondary School in Burlington, shows the teacher, who changed her first name from Kerry to Kayla, limping down a school hallway with the help of crutches and wearing a cast on her right foot.

That Sun has previously reported sightings of Lemieux wearing this boot after a skydiving adventure in Ancaster.

While the person on the dive said there were no apparent or reported injuries after landing, a foot injury has kept Lemieux out of the Oakville Trafalgar High School (OTHS) classroom for “safety reasons” because of the machines installed there. Previous videos showing Lemieux have already raised alarm bells from some industrial arts educators, who say the teacher’s large breasts and a chain around his neck pose potential safety hazards.

Lemieux hasn’t taught at OTHS for weeks but was caught on video this week and also recently at Hayden’s full dress as a substitute teacher Abbey Park High School in Oakville. Witnesses say Halton Regional Police cars were on the property of both schools.

“Lemieux receives personal guidance (and) protection everywhere he goes,” said one parent.

Police were right to be concerned about protecting students and teachers following a series of bomb threats.

The board has decided to honor Lemieux’s choice to identify and dress as a woman. They also didn’t comment on a posted TikTok video in which the teacher appears to be sitting next to an unidentified student vaping in a classroom, which is also against board rules.

Whether it’s the director of education, the chair of the school board, or the local school principals, it seems they have no answer as to how to deal with Lemieux.

Despite complaints, they have made protecting their rights a priority. Attempts to reach Lemieux for comment have been unsuccessful and the board has offered little information.

“As you know, we cannot comment on personnel matters,” said school board president Heather Francey.

But when it comes to students or staff taking pictures on school premises, “I can tell you that the HDSB has a policy on responsible use of information and communications technology,” Francey said. “It is standard practice for students to obtain permission from any subject (including other students, staff, or others) at all times before taking, using, and transmitting any image or video. This policy helps guide that standard courtesy throughout our organization.”
