Confused? Well, it is Halloween for kids who go to Bradford or Watchung or Northeast schools in Montclair. At Rand, too, kids will dress up, get to parade around outdoors in costumes, etc. If you have kids who attend Nishuane, you probably got the memo telling you to tell your kids that they won’t be celebrating Halloween tomorrow.
Regarding Nishuane, a tipster writes…
This may be have gone better under “Bah Humbug” last week, but my daughter came home from Nishuane today with a note saying “no costumes” on Wednesday.
They plan to do some sort of “Autumn Harvest Walk” on Friday, but is two days AFTER Halloween. Why, I can’t fathom. Is this just an isolated case, or is there a district policy to take the fun out of October 31?
And seeing as Nishuane has no real dress code, how will they deal with kids who show up in a Michael Strahan jersey, as at least one boy is bound to on any given day. (O.K., I could come up with a better example, but you get the idea.)
My daughter may not have the stomach for this fight, but any family that does, I will support.
We’re not sure about Edgemont.. Kids at Hillside have also been instructed not to wear costumes.
