Rockhurst is a private school

"Firmly rooted in Jesuit ideals and Catholic educational tradition, Rockhurst High School provides a dynamic environment for academic, spiritual and social growth. For more than 100 years, Rockhurst has challenged students with a rigorous academic program in the classical, Jesuit tradition."

This school is private and the people who pay tuition to send their children to the school need to make the decision if this is something they will tolerate.

In this case, this is not a public policy issue.

If the school wants to impart their religious traditions, and those traditions prohibit certain actions, then they have every right to set a standard of conduct for their students.
