Massachusetts School: “No Halloween! Black and Orange Spirit Day!”

, , ,

Daily Mail:

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ‘black and orange spirit day’ instead.

Boyden Elementary School’s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ‘not inclusive of all students’ and was ‘difficult’ for many.

Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ‘black and orange spirit day’.

Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.

But doesn’t this exclude people who prefer the color blue? How is that inclusive of all students?
As a parent it’s good to know the school is being run by someone who should be in Special Ed.


If I had a kid in that school, I would rally the parents (secretly) and show up with my kids with both of us dressed in some costume. If we weren’t allowed to stay then we would leave. Then I would appear the next day, and the next, and the next… until they give up on this nonsense. Make a dent in their ADA (Average Daily Attendance). I wonder how much that would cost the school.


As an Irish Catholic I’m deeply offended by their use of the word Orange. Where do I go to sue over this?
