A preschool student at a Catholic school in Boulder will not be allowed to re-enroll next year because the student's parents are a lesbian couple, 9News reported Thursday night.

Teachers at Sacred Heart of Jesus School told 9News they were told at a staff meeting earlier this week that the student would not be allowed to return to school next year because of the student's home situation. The teachers also were told not to talk to the media.

In a statement to 9News, the Archdiocese of Denver said the parents disqualified their child from enrollment by their actions.

"Homosexual couples living together as a couple are in disaccord with Catholic teaching," the statement said.

According to the archdiocese, parents who enroll their kids at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School are expected to follow the Catholic Church's beliefs.

"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 said.

Some staff members told 9News they were upset that a school that preaches love and understanding would take these actions.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus School could not be reached for comment late Thursday.
