I found this last night in The Principal's Page, the newsletter the boys' principal writes up for parents:
"If your child is fasting, please send a note to the teacher. Unless we are notified by parents that refusal of a meal is related to the religious observance, we will see that all children eat during the identified lunch period. Please help us be respectful of your child's religious observance by sending a note."
How much better is that than the Alabama governor's statements at his inaguration this week? Isn't it nice to know that there are some people in government (using that term loosely here, yes) who want to make it easier for people to freely exercise their religious beliefs?
