Sorry kids. No parade this year. We have to do away with it. The Muslims do not like it. God Bless America. Thank your UCSD.

We were informed today. Please call district office and complain. Anything else they want to take away from the people that pay your salary? To please who? Those who actually PAY taxes? Very disappointing for the children......
oh really

it's not just Jones school, all the Utica schools were informed, and it is NOT because of Muslims, you morons who think so. It is for the better, because Halloween serves NO purpose except to boost candy sales, lets our children go door to door begging for candy they don't need, and takes teaching time away from the kids.

Halloween needs to be REMOVED from the calendar, NOW, like Yesterday???

You are ridiculous, next time you go for your fourth piece of pie at thanksgiving, remember you dont need that pie. Let the kids have fun, one day of candy isn't the problem. Only in topix would there be people calling to end halloween

Ridiculous state tests and this is what utica is worried about? No wonder we are losing families. Parents need to fight back. Demand that kids should be allowed to be kids. That parade has been around for years.
unbelievable

Halloween is an american tradition and Lori Eccleston wants to take it away....as it is with the new Common Core there is so much pressure on our kids, now she is taking away any fun our kids have to please foreigners who come to our country and don't agree with our traditions...go back to ur country if u don't like it and take Lori with u!!

No party but they are able to celebrate a "harvest party" with a nutritional snack??? She is contradicting herself....either celebrate Halloween or don't. Don't mask it by calling it Harvest party. What is wrong with this district??
please

Make your voice heard. This is getting ridiculous. Please call or write to Eccleston and let her know how you feel. I am doing so today. I am sick and tired of this district. It is a wonder we have any families left here. The children love the annual parade and now you are trying to take this away also. What is next?

Why did they wait so long to tell the parents. My daughter already has her costume for the parade! Large class size, screwed up State tests and this is a priority? Are we still able to fly the american flag or does that bother certain people?

I'm getting tired of the whole thing. A havest party.? How fun is that! I'm glad my kids don't go to school anymore. Now I hope my grandchildren's school system is not like" Let's make everyone happy so The American children whose parents pay the taxes get the raw end of the deal!"
Halloween- Harvest Day
Christmas - Winter Party
Valentines Day -?
Easter- Spring time party
Give me a break!
Where is free speech? Where is to practice ones religion. Why can't we let all practice what we all have. That's where these kids can learn from each other.
Terrible!
