‘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.
