LARUE, TX (KLTV) - Lapoynor Independent School District says it's reviewing complaints raised about a religious symbol on school grounds.
The school recently came under fire for their display of a Christian flag.
Superintendent James Young said in a Thursday press release that the district is reviewing the complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation and is prepared to take action if needed.
On Oct. 11 the school district received the letter requesting that officials remove the Christian flag that flies over the school.
Sam Grover, who is an associate counselor for the FFRF, said in the letter that the district is "violating the establishment clause of the first amendment which prohibits the government from promoting one religion over another or religion generally over non-religion."
The FFRF advocates for the separation between religion and government.
Young did not provide a timeline on when that action might be expected but the school board is scheduled to have a regular meeting Thursday night and the issue may be discussed during open forum.
