When a Connecticut school system tried to do the same thing, the parents revolted, and the Halloween ban was quickly overturned.
Daily Caller Yet another elementary school, this time in New Jersey, is cancelling Halloween because it is offensive to the school’s diverse student body. (Which is code for not wanting to offend Muslim sensibilities)
Seth Boyden Elementary School in Maplewood held annual Halloween activities including a student parade, but now the pressures of diversity mean these activities are no longer appropriate, school officials say. (The only thing the school is concerned with are costumes that are offensive to Muslim terrorists)
“In the past, in-school celebrations of Halloween have made many of our students feel left out … [and as] a result, after careful consultation and deliberation, we have decided not to hold in-school Halloween activities,” said Seth Boyden principal Mark Quiles.
“One of the strengths of Seth Boyden is that we are such a diverse community, with many cultures represented, and that we truly value each one,” the principal and two Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) leaders said in a joint message to parents.
Yet everyday Muslim supremacist religious attire which is very offensive to Americans is never banned in public places.
The letter claims in 2014 about 20 percent of the student body either stayed home on Halloween or refused to participate in activities.
But that’s not all: A Massachusetts elementary school principal has lashed out against traditional American holidays, banning costumes in school for Halloween and telling teachers to “be careful” about celebrating Thanksgiving, the Boston Herald reports.
