One of the first orders of business at a new elementary school in Winnipeg was to figure out how to alter Halloween so that it no longer resembles Halloween. This year, kids at Sage Creek School will celebrate with something called Tie and Scarf Day.
Because the principal was worried that horrific costumes worn by Grade 7 and 8 kids might scare some of the younger children, and we can’t have that as we continue building our Snowflake Nation.
And, it isn’t just Halloween:
There’s the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board that banned school dances for students in grades six to eight.
We had administrators at the Mercer County School District in Washington State that effectively banned the game of tag.
And a school in Sydney, Australia that banned unnecessary noise.
