Valentines

EAST LANSING, MI – A Michigan school district is cutting Halloween and Valentine’s Day celebrations at its elementary schools over concerns of hurt feelings and uncomfortable families, The Associated Press reports.

It’s common to see students cry because their costumes and valentines don’t measure up, said Glenn Mitcham, assistant superintendent of East Lansing Public Schools. The district is striving to be “equitable and inclusive for all families,” he said.

The holidays can still be observed through teaching, such as using pumpkins to learn about dimensions, he said.

Other concerns among school officials include costumes that overwhelm or frighten young students and families feeling uncomfortable with elementary-aged children exchanging valentines in a love-focused celebration.
