A Utah Charter school sent a letter home to all parents of the students giving the options to opt-out of Black History Month activities.
The director of Maria Montessori Academy, Micah Hirokawa, posted on the school’s Facebook page that he sent a letter home to parents about the option to opt-out of Black History Month activities on Friday. According to MSN, he says families have the right “to exercise their civil rights to not participate in Black History Month at the school.”
The K-12 school has an enrollment of 322 students and there are only three Black children in the entire school. The school declined to respond how many parents elected to have their children opt-out of the Black History Month activities.
