Excellent idea, it could be used in past tense, as "why were you out there?"
It may or may not be 'legal' during school hours, before or after school apparently is OK, so this is before school begins.

wrong no one can stop you from expressing your beliefs even during school hours. the ACLU hasnt taken that from us yet
What are the schools going to do? Arrest the students for saying the Pledge & reciting prayers?
What part of the U.S. Constitution gives them the right for THAT?

The school my children attend has always been a small town oriented school, close knit, and since the town is religious, so was the school ceremonies.
But at the start of this school season, the tradition of meeting every morning around the flag pole seems to have taken on a whole new meaning with the hiring of a new high school principle.
My son, and about 250 other students had rallied around the flag pole for prayer before actual time for school to begin. They were having a prayer at the time for the victims of hurricane Katrina. As well as the normal everyday things that they say prayer for.
Then the new principle approached the crowd and told the group to break it up, that he would not support such activities on school campus as it might offend someone.
I must say, a lot of things that goes on in school today offends me as a parent, but I don't have the choice to opt my child out of the offensive program.
Who gets to decide where that line is drawn.
Why does the seperation clause of the "wall between Church and State" seem to have a door in it that only liberals have a key to, and that only swings one way;
and that way being in allowing the state to decide what is justified as "freedom of religion", and what is decided as "forced state religion".
