Parents to Boycott Elementary School Pride Day to Keep Children ‘Home and Innocent’

A group of parents are boycotting a pride parade at Saticoy Elementary, located in North Hollywood.

The parents plan to keep their children “home and safe,” according to a flier.

The flier read, “Videos will be shown to the students including one where it says, ‘some kids have 2 mommies, some have 2 daddies.’ This has caused outrage among parents.”

“We respect everyone, but some things are appropriate for children [of] that age, and some things are not,” one parent told KTLA-TV.

“Hopefully the message gets across and people understand that parents should be the primary contact of what their children should be exposed to and shouldn’t be exposed to,” the parent added.

A book highlighting diversity, “The Great Big Book of Families” will be read at the event during an assembly.

Reporting from The Blaze:

The school district told the paper it remains committed to “creating a safe and inclusive learning environment that embraces the diversity of the communities we serve.”

“As part of our engagement with school communities, our schools regularly discuss the diversity of the families that we serve and the importance of inclusion,” the LAUSD statement also said, according to the Times. “This remains an active discussion with our school communities, and we remain committed to continuing to engage with families about this important topic.”
