MILFORD, CT. (WWLP) – One school district over the state line has just reversed their decision to ban Halloween activities in the classroom.
Milford, Connecticut schools initially decided to cancel costume parties because too many kids weren’t able to participate, based on their families religious beliefs. The school decided, if everyone can’t participate, then school’s shouldn’t celebrate.
The decision didn’t sit well with some parents. Beth Wilson from Shutesbury told 22News, “A holiday that a lot of kids enjoy and I think if there are certain people who have certain beliefs, they could just not participate.”
Today, parents received a letter from the superintendent who is re-instating Halloween festivities.
