A preschool student at a Catholic school in Boulder, Colo., will not be allowed to return next year because the child's parents are lesbians living together, reports the Advocate.

The Denver Archdiocese claims the parents' relationship violates the school's beliefs and policy.

According to 9 News, a meeting was held at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School on Tuesday to discuss the "violation." The staff was told the child would not be allowed to re-enroll because of his or her parents' sexual orientation. The staff members were also told not to talk to the media.

The archdiocese said in a statement: "Homosexual couples living together as a couple are in disaccord with Catholic teaching."

"No person shall be admitted as a student in any Catholic school unless that person and his/her parent(s) subscribe to the school's philosophy and agree to abide by the educational policies and regulations of the school and Archdiocese," the statement continued.

"Parents living in open discord with Catholic teaching in areas of faith and morals unfortunately choose by their actions to disqualify their children from enrollment," said the archdiocese.

Legal experts told 9 News that the action by the archdiocese is legal because it is "school policy." However, staff members for the school say they are "disgusted."
