Hoopeston Area School District Press Release The Board of Education of Hoopeston Area School District is aware of misinformation in the community regarding the schools' policy about various matters. In an effort to correct the record, each and every school in the district calls the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. Students in early grades are taught the Pledge, and all students are asked to stand and recite the Pledge every day. No teacher in the schools is permitted to discourage students from standing for the Pledge or otherwise interfere with their showing of respect for the law's requirement that students be asked to reflect respect for our country. Even still, the school district fully understands and respects students' Constitutional rights to peaceably refrain from the Pledge during the school day. It is not District policy to comment on individual employment matters. Teachers are required to fully implement the school district's educational program, and the District is aware of no instance that a teacher has directed a student or group of students not to participate in the Pledge, and is aware of no instance that a teacher has discouraged any student from standing and reciting the Pledge. The school district and its staff have never asked for or ordered a student's vehicle to be relocated due to an expression of speech. The school district fully supports its' students rights to, without disruption to education, peacefully and safely express their individual political and personal beliefs at school.

This summer our staff spent some time learning about positive psychology through Orange Frog Workshop. This video shows staff breaking social scripts and acting out random acts of kindness. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3WtLiGoxtfc
