School Board Changes 'Christmas Break' to 'Holiday Break' Over 1 Complaint
A Massachusetts school board has banned the term “Christmas Break” due to one family’s complaint.
Back in September, Marshfield Schools approved a name change from “Christmas Break” to “Holiday Break.”
Since then, more than 4,000 people have signed a petition, urging the schools to reconsider.
This week, the school board voted to keep the name change.
School officials say it’s in the best interest of students and the town. The superintendent also stressed that the word “Christmas” will remain on the school calendar, and only the name of the break will change.
