Group threatens to sue charter school over students’ charitable project

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — The season of giving is already getting “Scrooged” for some school students in Highlands Ranch. At least that’s what many of them and their parents say.

The students were planning their annual drive for children in need when another group came forward threatening to sue the school if the charity drive continued.

But the students are getting creative to avoid the legal battle their school can’t afford and keep the holiday spirit alive.

The students at Sky View Academy Charter School are collecting items for children who might not otherwise get anything for Christmas. A religious message accompanies the package that is given. And that is what brought a letter threatening to sue the school.

FOX31 Denver’s Tammy Vigil has all of the details in her video report.
