Principals will ensure that holiday decorations recognize and respect the cultural and religious diversity of students and families in the district.

The State Fire Marshall has ruled that real evergreen trees or parts of trees and shrubbery may not be used in public buildings. Since schools are public buildings, the conventional evergreen trees, evergreen wreathes and other decorations of plant life are prohibited in all buildings. Artificial types may be used, but teachers should be cautioned to procure only those which are listed as fire resistant or fire proof.
