Schools are not structured as "Boot Camps" but do provide guidelines and expectations that are true extensions of society and the responsibliity of the district to provide a safe environment condusive to learning.
Our advise is to relax and trust that your child's needs will be met. Our recommendation is to become involved. Attend PTO meetings, school functions, athletic events, conferences, etc and become part of the school program.
This is a question that should be irected at parents in the schools.
I certainly would not think than one could not voice the word God or the Lord if not in vain. Just i can not be used in any school material here.
I would go to a PYA or PTO meeting at one of the schools that your childmay attend, meet some parents and ask your questions. They will post these dated on the marque outside the school.
