An East Tennessee second grader has missed 24 days of school because school officials say she has an odor.

The Washington County school system has suspended the eight-year-old several times over the last few months. Suspension documents say the girl hadn't bathed for the last two days, sleeps in her clothes, and couldn't remember the last time she took a bath or brushed her teeth.

The little girl's mom says her daughter does take baths and takes care of herself.
