STOCKTON, CA - Teachers at a Stockton school have been told they can't display Santas, Christmas trees and even Poinsettia plants this holiday because of religious concerns.

The holiday ban is happening at Claudia Landeen School, a K through 8 school in the Lincoln Unified School District.

Superintendent Tom Uslan said, from a conference in San Diego, because there are a "myriad of religious affiliations (at the school) we don't want a pervasive theme of a class to represent one religious affiliation."

Uslan also said there have been no complaints at the school.  The ban is taking place as a proactive step.

The bulletin message to teachers went on to say that teachers can decorate with snowflakes and snowmen. That, according to the written message, is "safe."
