TUSCUMBIA, AL (WAFF) -
A Shoals school is being asked not to sing a popular Christmas carol at their annual Christmas performance.
Parents are upset about a request to nix "Silent Night" from the program at GW Trenholm Primary School in Tuscumbia because of its reference to Jesus.
Parents said they heard the news about a possible ban on the song from their children's teachers.
School attorney Jimmy Hughston said despite a letter from lawyers, students will perform the Christmas program as rehearsed.
However, Hughston would not release the person or persons who requested the ban due to confendientiality reasons.
In the meantime, parents and community members are upset at the thought of banning a Christmas song from school.
