A teacher in the Johnston County School District has removed a religious email signature from his school account.

A parent in the district reported that a teacher at South Jackson High School was sending emails from his school email account with religious messages included in the signature line. An email received by our complainant included the message, “What we are born with is God’s gift to us. What we do with it is our gift to God.”

The principal of the school discussed the issue with the teacher and the email signature has been removed.
