The private playground at Riverside Christian School in East Grand Forks is definitely private.
Local youngsters who were playing on the playground Friday night said they were asked to leave because it was private property.
“Some grown-ups sent some kids over to tell us it was private property and we had to leave,” said one boy.
It’s not known if there was a real man at the school that could have spoken to the youth.
Riverside has faced criticism in the past few years for what some believe is lack of Christian leadership and conduct by school officials that seems at odds with Christian principles.
According to a source, the school has lost significant funding from private donors such as the Manvel Co-op that concluded the money would be better used elsewhere.
