The principal at Charles E. Patterson Middle School told a staff member to remove a poster from the nurse's office door. It had a biblical verse that was referenced the "A Charlie Brown Christmas" film, according to KCEN. The decoration poster featured the character Linus, along with the words "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord."
School board Vice President Corbett Lawler made a motion on Tuesday to study and develop new guidelines for making Christian references at school. The Board passed the motion 6-to-1. School Board President Terry Delano cast the only vote against the reevalutation.
