A school in Fort Collins caught national attention Monday after school administrators said no to an upcoming spirit day dubbed “’Merica Day.”

Students at Fort Collins High School were set to celebrate “’Merica Day” as a theme during the week of Valentine’s Day, according to the Coloradoan.

The move by school administrators upset some community members and people held a demonstration with U.S. Flags outside the school, according to the Coloradoan. A student told the Coloradoan that administrators said it could be offensive to the school’s international students.

The students are now going to celebrate “My Country Monday”.

Fox News posted a commentary on its website with the author saying “shame on the administrators at Fort Collins High School for treating American school children like second-class citizens.”
