MILFORD, Del. (AP) - Officials in one Delaware community have removed Spanish-language signs from elementary school playgrounds amid concerns that they conveyed an intimidating message.
Milford schools superintendent Phyllis Kohel says she and her husband on Sunday removed the signs, which had been up for about a year.
English signs at the playgrounds said adult supervision was required, while the signs' Spanish version said a permit was needed and violators could face police action. No permits are required.
The discrepancy was noticed by a talk-radio host for WXDE, who posted pictures of the signs on his Facebook page.
Kohel, in her first year as superintendent, says she doesn't know why the Spanish signs carried that message but thinks perhaps they were duplicated from similar signs posted at the district's middle and high schools.
