The Cedar School in Montville, New Jersey sent a letter home to parents last week apologizing for the behavior of a substitute teacher assigned to a first grade class. The principal of the school Michael Raj told the parents: "During the course of the day, a substitute teacher apparently announced to the class that Santa was not real." NJ Advance Media obtained a copy of the letter on Friday. Raj went on to say: "As a father of 4 myself, I am truly aware of the sensative nature of this announcement." He said he was informing parents so "If the conversation comes up at home over the next few days you can take appropriate steps to maintain the childhood innocence of the holiday season."
The teacher was not identified but the principal did say he spoke to the teacher about her "poor judgement in making the proclamation."
I hope Santa puts a termination letter and a few lumps of coal in her stocking.
