A north Georgia school district that came under fire after an elementary school principal said a Christian prayer at a graduation has reportedly responded to the complaint.

The American Humanist Association said the Rabun County School "written assurances that they won’t be permitting the principal to deliver... Christian prayers at graduations." The organization sent a letter to the school district on behalf of at least one parent demanding action be taken regarding the reported prayer.

A wooden "Jesus" that was hanging on a power pole in front of the school and was mentioned in the complaint was also removed by Georgia Power.

A statement sent to FOX 5 News read, "We are pleased that the school district has agreed to comply with the First Amendment because all students feel welcome in the district, regardless of their beliefs on religion." 

The school district could not be reached Monday for comment.
