(PALM SPRINGS DESERT SUN) — School officials have asked a dozen students wearing anti-gay symbols at Shadow Hills High School in Indio to remove the badges “for now” pending further investigation by the Desert Sands Unified School District.
In a letter sent to Shadow Hills staff Monday morning, district Superintendent Gary Rutherford said "recently some information has been brought forward that requires additional investigation and follow-up to determine a proper course of action. Pending further investigation, we are going to ask students who are displaying the symbol showing a rainbow pattern with a circle and a line, at least for now, to remove symbols while at school."
Officials would not comment on what additional information prompted the investigation. A call to Shadow Hills Principal Marcus Wood was not immediately returned.
