FFRF takes down religious elementary school sign in Kentucky (Oct. 24, 2012)

A member of the Martin County Kentucky Community told the Freedom From Religion Foundation that a local elementary school’s electronic sign read, “Attend church this Sunday.”

FFRF Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert sent a letter on Oct. 17 to Superintendent of Martin County Schools Mark Blackburn to address the constitutional violation at Eden School.

“It is inappropriate for the District to advocate church attendance on school property,” Markert’s letter said.

Martin County School District attorney John Triplett replied with an Oct. 24 letter which said the religious phrase was removed from Eden School’s message board.
