I asked my son about this. At his school, they give detention to anyone who doesn't say the pledge, or if the teacher notices them faking it.
I told him don't say it if he doesn't want to, and I'll talk [threathen really] to them if he gets in trouble. Of course he won't, due to peer pressure. I'm tempted to file a suit to prohibit any consequences for failure to comply with the pledge regardless of 'under god'.

I doubt you'll need to file suit. Someone already did it for you in the 40's. The policy makers for your school should have no problem understanding the error they have made if you share this opinion with them.
