Not a joke, not the Babylon Bee, this is the flyer from a real school in Chesapeake, Virginia, just four minutes from the Walmart where a store manger killed six November 22nd before taking his own life. Shocked parents then received this from the school’s principal (emphasis mine):
Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) is committed to open communication and transparency with our families. For that reason, you are receiving this letter to ensure you have accurate information.
The School District has long held policies and procedures in place which allow varied community groups to use our publicly funded facilities outside of the school day. This is common practice among school districts around the state and nation. Over the years, different religious groups have requested and been allowed to rent our facilities after hours. By law, CPS cannot discriminate based on beliefs among groups wishing to rent our facilities.
Consistent with the law as detailed above and the criteria set out in the CPS Board policy, the School District has approved a building use request from an organization known as the “After School Satan Club” (ASSC) to host gatherings after school hours at B.M. Williams Primary School. Students must have parental permission to attend any after school event hosted by any outside organization.
It is important to note that CPS does not endorse any of the activities or content of groups that host events on school district property outside the instructional day. It is also important to note that the ASSC is not a School District-approved club, and no District employee is acting as a club sponsor.
We understand that this decision may be surprising and possibly even upsetting to some. Please know that we are committed to working to minimize any distractions this news may create, while ensuring our focus is always on providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students.
Brighid Gates, Principal
Well, I guess if they minimize the distractions it’s all good. After all, it’s “tons of fun”.
It has been obvious for some time that our institutions no longer serve us. Now they begin to provide useful clarity on who they now serve. If government run schools provide these kinds of results, isn’t it time we moved on from the experiment? Would even voucher programs be sufficient for parents to address this? Will agitated parents addressing school board meetings in response to this be harassed as domestic terrorists by the Biden Justice Department? Should any parent be forced to send their child to a school where the Brighid Gates’ of this society facilitate the access of Satanists to our children?
Prayers are welcome and appreciated.Published in
