MD Elementary School Lifts V-Day Ban

Paper hearts are welcome again at a Frederick County elementary school after parents protested a ban on Valentine's Day cards.
 
Walkersville Elementary School Assistant Principal Diana Sargeant said Monday that students can exchange valentines as long as no food or candy is attached.

  And she says those who choose to bring valentines must have one for every student in the classroom.
 
School officials dropped the Valentine's Day celebration last year to avoid what Principal Stephanie Brown called ``inappropriate interactions between boys and girls.''
 
She told The Frederick News-Post last year that romance between students had no place in the elementary school classroom.
