FFRF Takes Church Sign off Michigan Elementary School Lawn (Oct. 11, 2012)

Endeavour Elementary School in New Haven, Mich., took down a lawn sign promoting a church that rents the school’s cafeteria every Sunday.

After receiving a complaint from a local resident, FFRF Senior Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert wrote the Superintendent of New Haven School District Keith Wunderlich on Oct. 11 about the impropriety of keeping a permanent sign promoting a church on school property.

Wunderlich responded with an Oct. 12 letter, acknowledging that keeping the sign up all week was a problem. He said the church complied with the district’s request to only keep the sign up on Sundays, the day the church rents the cafeteria.
