Just reading through the Grapevine and it was stated that Shen is not removing girl/boy signs throughout the district.

Written by on September 28, 2017 in Grapevine

A. This has been answered many times if you just do a search on the site for “pledge.” Students cannot be forced to stand for or say the Pledge of Allegiance in school.
