Parents Protest over MAGA hats and shirts at a Gilbert, Arizona High School

Students being disciplined while wearing political attire last week at a Gilbert High School has triggered Protests on the campus. According to people on Facebook students were send home for wearing "Make America Great Again" closing on their school's "USA Day" celebration.

The principal sent a letter to parents, saying the social media messages were "false" and that the students were disciplined for a different reasons. Here is some of the letter.

"The administration addressed an incident that occurred at lunch this past Friday, when students carrying political signage caused a disruption and created safety concern. The students were asked to put away the signage and they complied. However, after school ended for the day, the students unveiled the signage again in a manner that again caused concern for student safety.
When the school's Resource Officer asked the students to leave campus, they declined. They also refused to respond to my request to provide their names and school identification when I sought to interview them. The information circulating about student discipline is incorrect, but the District is unable to correct the record due to federal privacy laws relating to disclosure of student information."

According to reports about 30 adults gathered to protest near the school Monday morning, displaying Trump flags and American flags.
