District 69 has made the decision not to celebrate Halloween this year. This decision was not made lightly and many factors (including economic, social and religious) were considered. Many students cannot afford costumes and there is an economic disparity. We also have students that are unable to participate for religious or cultural reasons. In the past, these students have had to sit in another room and participate in an alternative activity. Every year the number of students that cannot participate grows. Our staff and administration feel very strongly that we never want students to feel uncomfortable while in school and this celebration makes many uncomfortable.
The Village of Skokie has some Halloween offerings if you are looking for a family Halloween activity outside of school. Learn more at http://www.skokieparks.org/special-events. Also, continue to check www.downtownskokie.org for information about upcoming fall activities.
If you have previously kept your child home from school on Halloween, you can send your child to school without concern about any Halloween activities. Classrooms may do a seasonal (not Halloween) art project or activity, but there will not be any parties or costumes. Please do not send your child to school with any Halloween goody bags or Halloween items to distribute.
This decision was made to be reflexive of our community. Thank you for understanding.
Yours in Education,
Quintin Shepherd, Ph.D.
