The controversial poster.
The poster has caused a stir, with teachers and parents divided on the issue.
On Facebook, Maureen Crist writes: "'It takes a village' to raise children. I would hope those values are incorporated in the classroom. Some kids don't get it at home."
Gretchen Rae agrees: "So many kids don't get these vital life skills at home. We teach all things by example... I do my best to provide this instruction as I teach them academics."

"Perfectly written!" Kel Dickins commented on Facebook.
"100% accurate," Steven Clarke agreed.
The school has not commented any further on the posters.
