Religious display removed from Calif. high school (October 2023)

FFRF had California’s Victor Valley Union High School District remove religious messages from the girls bathroom at Adelanto High School.

A concerned student reported that the bathroom nearest to the high school’s front office contained a religious message on the wall. The complainant reported that the display said, “Wash your HANDS and say your PRAYERS because Jesus and GERMS ARE EVERYWHERE.” The complainant found the message to be bizarre, creepy and confusing.

FFRF Staff Attorney Chris Line wrote to Superintendent Carol J. Coles and received a message from Assistant Superintendent Ratmony Yee, writing “The content referenced in your communication has been removed as of Monday, August 28, 2023.”
