Moment of Silence

 June 9, 2009

You should stop observing the moment of silence at your schools. Previously, the order issued by Judge Gettleman in the Sherman case only applied to District 214. However, Sherman's motion to create a defendant class of all Illinois school districts was granted. Subsequently, Judge Gettleman extended his order for preliminary injunction to all Illinois school districts on May 29,2008. Therefore, all Illinois school districts are prohibited from observing the moment of silence.
