School drops Halloween parade because it’s not “inclusive”

Judge Judy shakes head rolls eyes

From Fox News: 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.

Some parents are not happy about the changes to the Halloween festivities.

“We have numerous events at the school that are not ‘all inclusive,’ so if you cancel one event, you have to cancel them all,” parent Julie Rowre told Fox 25.

“Put a costume on. Parade down the street. Let them have their little time,” another parent told CBS Boston. “Why do you have to turn it into something political?”

“I think it’s a lot of political correctness,” a local resident said. “I think it’s a shame because Halloween is the funnest day of the year – next to Christmas – for children.”

    While I don’t believe in Halloween as it’s being celebrated, I won’t condemn those who do.
    Here’s my question: Why do we suppress the activities of the many for the sake of the few?
    To what end do we deny activities, because they’re “exclusive” to some? Must we exclude EVERYTHING to be “inclusive” to all? That’s insanity!

  2. How is it not inclusive? And to whom? I think children have innocent minds as to what Halloween is about and only see the costumes and free candy of the night.
    I agree with Hadenough, why do the few control the rest?
    If parents don’t want their children to have the same fun as their classmates. Keep them home, don’t expect everyone to bend.

    • You may think is a satanic ritual but, there is nothing more than a day to parade the children around the neighborhood with their customs and get candy, they get soooo much they only eat a few, makes the little ones happy and the grownups too, booooh, boooh, booohhhhh.

    • Glenn47 . . . You have come up with the perfect solution, if you do not want your child to participate in this activity, that’s okay, but to deny other people their right to celebrate something . . . that’s NOT OKAY. If this particular school is celebrating ANY Muslim holidays, but not Christian . . . then the families of Christian children need to be held out of school for that day; with the parent(s) writing the following note: Please excuse Suzie Q, she was unable to attend school yesterday, due to attending to family business. Sincerely, Suzie Q’s Parent.

  3. If there are Christian families that do not celebrate this satanic holiday then I completely agree with the decision of the principal. Unfortunately, God has been removed from the schools and secular holidays allowed in. Now that the people are used to it they complain when it is removed. I hope Christian families home school their children then this would not be an issue.

    • This is NOT a satanic holiday when celebrated in the traditional Catholic way. In the Catholic religion Halloween is part of All Souls Day and All Saints Day. As a Catholic, from a very young age, I participated in our family and community tradition of tending to the gravesites of deceased family members. Everyone met at the graveyards to clean up and repaint the white tombs that are above ground here in South Louisiana. Fresh flowers were put at all the grave sites. It was a time when the community came together and it was a very important part of Halloween. The Catholic priests led processions around the graveyard praying for the deceased and blessing the graves. As children we were taught to respect these traditions during Halloween season out of respect for the dead and for the heavenly saints.

    I would think that every true U.S.citizen should be inclusive enough. Those who think just being born in the U.S. alone makes em citizens, or have managed to evade immigration law for most or all of their life, just don’t matter; that is cept to nationalist fools.

  6. And what is the punishment. There’s always a punishment because our nation wants to punish anybody and everybody for damn near everything you can imagine. The complete imbeciles we have in positions of authority in our country today. Rules, rules and more laws Non-Stop.

  7. I read today where one of the universities was actually demonstrating what costumes were appropriate to the students. This isn’t about Halloween, or anything like it, it’s about control and acclimating people to not thinking for themselves or having choices.

  8. Let’s play a game called “search and research the marxist communist jews/shobbas goy freemasons subverting this American event. All these PC brigade idiots and subversives have jews behind them (Soros, haim saben, rabbi child raper, etc, etc). I wonder why jews have been thrown out of AT LEAST 359 places around the world different races, religions, cultures, and eras spanning thousands of years can’t be a coincidence, unless of course you are the sheeple. Sad too cuz most of these parents will think this is some sort of natural progression. But it’s always always shlomo and his minions.
