Onalaska Elementary School Principal C.J. Gray has received threatening calls and letters following a controversy that erupted over a sex education class she taught to fifth grade students two weeks ago.

Some parents were alarmed after hearing that Gray had answered a question about anal and oral sex from the 10- and 11-year-old students during the class intended to teach prevention of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.

    I'm sorry, I tried to discuss the above topic of the above article and when I referred to the class taught by it's name I was informed that I had used profanity.

    The majority of you parents need to get over it. I am 61, with adult children, 2 grandkids, 1 that just graduated and 1 that has a smal child. It's not that big of deal and your blowing things out of proportion to the degree that threats are being made to Principal Gray is indicative of a far greater problem out in Onalaska than the class that was taught.
