"In the past, in-school celebrations of Halloween have made many of our students feel left out ... [and as] a result, after careful consultation and deliberation, we have decided not to hold in-school Halloween activities," Mark Quiles, Seth Boyden Elementary School principal told parents, dailycaller.com reports.

In addition, the school administration noticed that their students do not feel enthusiastic about the holiday.

Last year, the majority of adolescents stayed at home, despite the American tradition of Halloween, while 20% of other students refused to take part in school activities.
