Willmar School District holds to policy on religious activity

Email

WILLMAR -- Willmar school officials plan to keep the same policy they've had for six years regarding Muslim daily prayers, but a local Somali father is not happy with the decision.

The policy allows students to pray during their lunch breaks and between class periods, according to Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard.

Somali parents kept their children home last Friday to object to the district's po-licy, Abdulcadir Abucar Gaal said.
