Letter to Editor: Parent questions senior photo policy
I am writing concerning my son’s picture for the yearbook, because he has his dog in the picture the school isn’t allowing it. They state it isn’t a school activity yet any of the sports can have their props in the picture, welding class can have shirts and helmets, etc.
There were four other students that also wanted pets in pictures and were told they needed to submit another picture. My son is not the easiest person to take photos, in the ones with his dog he is relaxed and has a nice smile. The principal and superintendent refuse to even consider changing or amending the policy.
I feel he and the other students are being singled out because they don’t participate in extracurricular school activities. My son is involved with church activities and a part time job rather than school activities.
I would like to know if any other parents are having the same trouble with this. This is the picture he picked and it’s his last picture in school, I feel he should have the right to express himself the way he feels.
