Another reason was because “teachers overwhelmingly feel that the time lost from instruction caused by costumes is too valuable when they already do many other community-building activities throughout their classrooms.”
Parents like Nicole Lewis said children look forward to the yearly tradition and it's not fair it's being taken away.
"It's important for the kids to stay motivated and have some fun things to look forward to, and just to have them, you know, be able to let loose a little,” Lewis told KPTV. “I think really Halloween is about promoting imagination and creativity and having a little fun, and I just don't think there's anything wrong with that.”
Instead of allowing costumes, Scholls Heights Elementary will stage a “Crazy Sock Day” on Halloween, KPTV reported.
