Midwest City (OK) ensures school will remain neutral on religion (January 14, 2019)

The Mid-Del City school district is taking steps to ensure it is in compliance with its constitutional obligation to remain neutral on religion.

A parent in the Mid-Del School District reported that Schwartz Elementary School held a Christmas concert last December that included religious worship music. The complainant reported that students sang “Happy Birthday” to Jesus and about how much they love Jesus.

FFRF Legal Fellow Chris Line wrote a letter to Superintendent Rick Cobb, who then responded, saying he is “aware of the incident and [they] are taking steps internally to ensure that the practices of our schools and staff are in alignment with state and federal laws.”
