ALTONA -- School officials in Manitoba have decided gay-friendly signs must be removed from the walls of an elementary school.
Some parents with children who attend West Park School in Altona complained about the small rainbow-coloured signs last month.
They said their children are too young to learn about sex and especially about different sexual orientations.
Teachers put up the signs last fall in some grades 4 to 6 classrooms to promote tolerance for gay and transgendered youth.
School officials initially backed the teachers.
But now they have ruled the signs must come down.
The Border Land School Division says different signs describing support will be posted in the school.
A committee is also working on a manual to deal with bullying.
