In response to the omission of “God” from the Pledge of Allegiance at the football game last night, please understand that it was not intentional nor was it encouraged by the District. We asked that the Pledge of Allegiance be recited before the game began. It was read from a version that was the first document of a Google search, which was the 1892 version.
We recite the Pledge of Allegiance every day in school and before every extra-curricular event. We made a mistake, and I sincerely apologize. We will more be careful as we recite the Pledge of Allegiance in the future.
