FFRF says away with the manger in N.Y. school (December 11, 2018)

A nativity scene was removed from a New York elementary school after FFRF intervened.

A concerned parent of a Harvey C. Fenner Elementary School student in Falconer, N.Y., reported that the school had placed a nativity scene near its main entrance. A picture of the nativity scene showed it sitting by the front desk, such that any student or guest to the school had to walk by it.

FFRF Robert G. Ingersoll Legal Fellow Colin McNamara wrote district Superintendent Stephen Penhollow to request that the scene be removed.

FFRF received a prompt response from the superintendent informing us that the display was removed.
