It didn’t take long for Big Lake High School (Minnesota) to make an amendment to its policy about showing guns in the yearbook, and for the first time since the team was created, the Big Lake Trap Shooting Team photo will be featured in the school’s yearbook.
This whole debacle started just days ago, on Wednesday, when the team’s coach Rhonda Eckerdt first learned from the athletic director the picture wouldn’t be included in the yearbook.
After backlash from coaches, parents, even community members, the school decided it would discuss the issue during a school board meeting Thursday night. But, on Thursday morning the school decided to make an exception to its rule and feature the team photo. Finally, commonsense defeats stupidity!
According to KSTP, the policy amendment reads:
“All photos, written text, and artwork must conform to school policies and are subject to approval by the yearbook advisor and/or administration. Photos and artwork that violate school policy, display firearms, weapons, drugs, alcohol, inappropriate gestures or poses, and revealing or obscene clothing may be edited or excluded without permission or notification. Exception given to our school-sponsored trap-shooting team which will be allowed to have team pictures in the yearbook, team poster displayed in the school, and any approved photos taken by yearbook staff. These photos would include their firearms.”
