Grades vs. Ghouls – Union County Students Banned from Wearing Costumes

Score one for those who hate Halloween.

A Union County superintendent banned students at the district’s two elementary schools from wearing their costumes to school yesterday. Michael Davino, of Springfield, cited concerns that dressing up distracts students from learning and championed celebrating the holiday after school hours.

Something tells me that Michael was the kid who was constantly receiving unwrapped candy and loose change during his childhood trick or treating. As a husband of a grade school teacher I totally get the importance of focus in the classroom and having students paying peak attention. On the other hand, I know how cool it was to show my friends my new Power Rangers costume when I was in school.

The school system blew it on this one. I’ll be sure to remember this next time a superintendent comes trick or treating at my door.
