Acting district chief Amy Jones said that school officials made their decision on Sunday night. She stated that the decision was correct, based on the district’s “crisis management plan.” The plan prohibits “permanent memorials” to a sad event based on the idea that such reminders worsen students’ grief.

“The intent was designed to protect the interests of the students,” she said, adding that the idea is “based on a lot of research and expert opinion.”
