Oregon teachers asked not to put up Santa, Christmas decorations in class

- Jolly Old St. Nicholas might need to find a new home for the holidays, at least in one Oregon school district.

As seen Thursday on Fox & Friends, the Hillsboro School District sent a memo to its staff, obtained by KATU, asking that religious-themed holiday decorations, including images of Santa Claus, be removed from classrooms.

According to the memo:
