A local junior high school student is suspended from school after writing "I Love Jesus" on his backpack.
Actis Principal Bill Galloway said all writing is prohibited so covert messages don’t get through.
"They could be making a reference to drugs or gangs in a slang that we’re not aware of so that’s why we just keep it to the names," said Galloway.
The Bakersfield City School District said they do allow writing on clothing and supplies that is appropriate for school.
