This is my formal indignation and protest of (Principal Cheryl Logan’s) decision to turn our public school at Parkdale High School into a movement to satisfy a select few based on their Muslim faith. You should realize you are not being fair to the student body or parents of “our school” funded by taxpayers, and this is not a place for your private desires to discriminate and experiment to the detriment of the teaching environment.

Frankly, you should stop and think about all the others and know the school is not about Cheryl Logan being politically correct, but astute to all without regard to religious faith. Having practiced Islam myself in the past, I would never — I do not care who likes my faith — impose, and you are imposing on others.

Those who feel the need to betray the system should just wait their turn to pray and not interrupt the normal occurrences in school. I implore you to halt this practice ASAP and do not continue to be draconian in your disposition to the families of the other 2,000-plus students, faculty and parents, in that order.
