Walpole School's Political Correctness Transforms Halloween into Black & Orange Spirit Day

Annual parade cancelled, and holiday name changed, all in the name of inclusion.

    A Walpole elementary school has organized a Halloween parade and party annually, which welcomes family and friends to the school in order to cheer on the costumed children. Seemingly out of nowhere Brendan Dearborn, the school's principal, sent a letter to parents claiming the parade "can be difficult for many students." 

“…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,” 

    Many parents are disappointed, stating the children were excited for the annual parade. Dearborn also pointed to the students safety, mainly because of the lack of security that would allow anyone to participate in the event. The school will instead celebrate "Black and Orange" spirit day. The parade has now been morphed into a party that will take place after school hours. In addition, the politically correct can now add Boyden Elementary School to the list of institutions under their control. Boyden Elementary joins Mitchell Elementary School in Needham as the only two Massachusetts schools to do away with the celebrations.
