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.
