“Because of that, our classrooms will not host any Halloween activities during the school day,” Hornak said.

The superintendent said he wanted to remind everyone they still want students and staff to have fun in the classroom despite the decision.

“We know there will be plenty of community activities and events outside of school to enjoy around Halloween. We appreciate your understanding, and we are looking forward to a great fall!” Hornak said.
