Won U.S. District Courts
Last Updated


The principal of Maple Leaf Intermediate School told a "moms" group that a flier and permission slip for an upcoming "After School Christmas Story Hour" could no longer be distributed due to a new policy barring religious fliers. The district's superintendent backed the decision, citing so-called "separation of church and state" laws.
