Nelson said another parent sent an email aying that Pinkerton Academy could also have done more to honor the day. The high school did start the day with a flag ceremony hosted by the school’s JROTC students.
Nelson said school activities to honor 9/11 were all geared to a child’s age and level of maturity.
School Board member Dan McKenna said the day is important and should be honored, but schools should make their own decisions.
“Personally, I wouldn’t feel comfortable telling the school how to celebrate or remember (important days),” he said. “Schools remember and celebrate days differently.”
