  • Dido to all the answers. If its a private school that is a different story.

  • Unless it's a private (especially Christian) school it most certainly is not okay.

  • Since you said Dean instead of principal I'm going to guess this is a private school. If it is then they have a lot more freedom in that department....especially if it is a religious private school.

  • No ... unless it is a private religious school but even then, I think I would question it.
