Elementary School Drops Halloween Because It's 'Not Inclusive,' Replaces It With 'Black & Orange Day'

A Massachusetts elementary school canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating "Black and Orange Spirit Day" instead.

The principal of Boyden Elementary School sent a letter to parents informing them that the annual Halloween costume parade was canceled amid concerns over inclusivity and safety.

"The costume parade is out of our ordinary routine and can be difficult for many students. Also, the parade is not inclusive of all the students, and it is our goal each and every day to ensure all student’s individual differences are respected," the letter read in part.

On Friday, October 20, the school will have a Halloween party after school hours. But October 31 will be a "spirit day," on which students can wear the colors black or orange, but not costumes.


Yeah let's suck the fun out of every aspect of this existence shall we... 15.gif

I wonder if this is what happened in the early days of the church. Yule wasn't inclusive so they changed it to Christmas, etc.


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
