A Nebraska preschool is asking a three-year-old deaf boy to change his name because it violates the school boards weapons policy.
Hunter Spanjer signs his first name by making what looks like shooting gestures with both hands. He crosses his fingers when he does it – a modification to show its his proper name.
But the Grand Island Public Schools board says its “Weapons in Schools” policy bans “any instrument … that looks like a weapon.” The school wants him to change the sign, a request Hunters family says is both unfair and silly.”
Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous. This is not threatening in any way,” Hunters grandmother Janet Logue told local news station 1011.”Its a symbol. Its an actual sign, a registered sign,” said Hunters father, Brian Spanjer.
