Parents critical of School District No. 3’s hunting policy sought relief Monday night from the board of trustees, but they stayed with the current policy. Under attack was school policy of handing out a zero grade for all classes missed for hunting. Dr. G.W. Ohman, who had taken his son out of class to go hunting with him, asked for a review of the policy. Board members said they had received several calls from other parents with similar requests. LHS principal Grant Goodrich noted the school allows two days each year for hunting, and that any change in the current policy would result in high absenteeism from Sept. 1 through the end of the year.
