Winnipeg has crappiest elementary school in Canada

‘Tie and scarf day’ replaces Halloween costumes at Winnipeg school

WINNIPEG — A new Winnipeg school’s decision to stop students from wearing their costumes to class on Halloween has upset some parents, who argue it’s not fair to deny their kids the fun.

Ecole Sage Creek School principal Marc Poirier says since this is the Kindergarten to Grade 8 school’s first year, staff debated what the costume policy would be.

He said teachers from schools where kids were allowed to dress up noted some kids wore scary or gory costumes that frightened younger children, or they carried props such as swords. Other costumes, he said, weren’t age-appropriate.

Thanks for ruining childhood you asshats.

    Another example of no escapism. No one is allows to have fun. The new inquisition is both affronted and horrified that someone somewhere is having lots of fun. And there’s no accompanying social justice message

    I call BS, what kinds of kids would choose a tie and scarf day over a Halloween party? The principal is lying.

    Thought they planned to tie up the teachers and force them to scarf down a “healthy cafeteria lunch food option” to celebrate the day.

    I heard that Saudi Arabia was planning on changing the tawaf ritual during the hajj to “National Kiss a Rock Day!” to become more inclusive. Because names don’t matter.

    It makes sense as Halloween has been declared haram by many imams and we must not offend any Muslims.
