Pledge of Allegiance, moment of silence remain in Arlington classrooms

Must Read

Arlington students headed back to class on Aug. 29 will continue to be encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and engage in a minute of silence to start the school day, based on a policy affirmation made at the Aug. 18 School Board meeting.

Not that local officials had any choice in the matter, as the Code of Virginia mandates that school systems conduct both the Pledge of Allegiance and hold a minute of silence (for prayer, meditation or other purpose).

The Aug. 18 action was simply a routine five-year adoption of existing policy, staff said in a report to School Board members.
