OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A memo from the principal was sent to faculty and staff about dos and donts in the classroom this holiday season at Manchester Elementary.

Parents found out about the memo and since then the principal has been put on administrative leave, according to an Elkhorn School District spokesperson. Parents at the school now stand divided on the issue. "I feel that something was wrong with what she was doing. she was kinda enforcing or making the rest of her school think the way she did," said Vicki Dryden, a grandmother of a Manchester student.

A mother of two Manchester students said she thinks the principal being put on administrative leave has blown the situation way out of proportion, especially since the principal has since sent an apology letter. "I just don't think we could ask for a better principal," she said.
