Some parents are upset in the Melrose Public School District after Superintendent Julie Kukenberger made the decision to do away with Halloween festivities in favor of “fall celebrations” in order to be more inclusive. She told the press that “some people don’t celebrate Halloween,” and said that in past years “That’ll mean some kids don’t come at all that day.”

The group of parents that are upset with the seeming dismissal of Halloween isn’t taking the decision lying down. An online petition titled “Keep Halloween for Our Kids” is circulating, and a Halloween costume parade is scheduled for the Melrose High School parking lot today, with it all being promoted online with the hashtag #MelroseSavesHalloween.
