AMERICAN FORK, UT – Parents of students in the Alpine School District are outraged after finding propaganda inside the school bus.
The flyers contain religious statements and conservative memes, as well as talking points from conservative organizations like Turning Point USA.
In a statement from the Alpine School District Public Information Office, they learned of the incident on Friday and immediately removed the leaflets from the bus.
David Stephenson, Executive Director of External Relations and Communications, said: “While I cannot comment specifically on the personnel issues, I can confirm that an investigation and appropriate action has been taken. “
At this time, we don’t know what actions the Alpine School District has taken.
It comes a month after a teacher in Lehi’s Alpine School District was fired after commenting to students in his class about their hatred for former President Donald Trump and COVID-19.
