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......
How many taxes are actually deducted from your tiny paycheck? lol give me a break, how funny! cant stop laughing

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???
maybe the Lori chick is a J. Witness imposing her beliefs on the district.

Back in September a parent raised some concerns about all the Muslim brotherhood that was placed in Jones School and a lot of posters poo-pooed his/her concerns. The Muslims do not participate in Halloween. I wouldn't at all be surprised if they screeched and the board quivered and decided to wimp out. Can't say you weren't warned. Remember when Christmas vacation was changed to the Holiday vacation? Well that was based on religious objection. Now the Muslims are basing that on this as well...keep in mind this is one nation under God, not allah.

I don believe in god which is probably why Halloween doesn't bother me. Having said that I would much rather marry a church going girl than an atheist.

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!!
I'm thinking she is more concerned with keeping her job than maintaining a time honored tradition.

why do you need school parties?? Take your kids around the neighborhood for treats if you want to make parties....or HOST a party of your own!

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
You probably eat a whole pie at a sitting........You should study a grammar/punctuation book while you are stuffing your big, fat pie hole.
so big deal

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?
your daughter can use her costume to parade around the neighborhood as most kids do..big deal!

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.
time someone with b@$$s came along and put an end to this STUPID tradition...Parents can take their own children in the neighborhood to ask for handouts (yes, that's what it is)or better yet have a get-together at your house and invite a few friends..bob for apples, play games...OH wait, I have even a better idea..WIPE THIS STUPID DAY OFF THE CALENDAR...GEEZ

Stop over to the New Hartford fire station Halloween night. They still have a parade and costume judging and refreshments. There are other communities still around us that let children have a childhood. Tell the liberal tards in the Utica school system to suck it.

I find that everyone I know who complains about Halloween being a Pagan holiday puts up a Christmas tree (another "Pagan" tradition). This world is full of hypocrates.
