Yet another elementary school, this time in New Jersey, is cancelling Halloween because it is offensive to the school’s diverse student body.

 

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.

 

“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,” Seth Boyden principal Mark Quiles and two Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) leaders said in a joint message to parents. “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.” More
