North Lamar ISD released a statement earlier today via social media with regards to alleged backlash over this year’s High School Yearbook.
The statement released by Interim Superintendent Kelli Stewart said,” Our common vision for the North Lamar High School yearbook is to afford all high school students and their families with an annual publication which records, highlights and commemorates the past year.”
Further down the statement then says,” Regrettably, this year’s NLHS’ yearbook contained certain content that some purchasers consider divergent from our yearbook’s mission. After seeing the high school yearbook for the first time, and after numerous phone calls and emails of concern, I am offering any student or family a full refund if he/she chooses.”
It is unclear what the controversial ‘content’ that appears to be the crux of this issue is.
Attempts to gain clarification from Stewart was unattainable at the time of this article post.
However, comments on the original thread that appears on the NLISD Facebook page, seems to speculate something of a political nature.
“Our high school students have been busy in the classroom, on the stage, in the athletic arena and UIL competitions during this school year. Our students continue to excel and make us proud in all their endeavors. While challenges inevitably surface, together we will navigate through and overcome them. The expectations for future yearbooks will be addressed.” Stewart said in the official press release.
