Are your kids allowed...?

Are your kids allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school? What grade?

My son just started K this year, and no costumes are allowed at his school. They are having a special "Pumpkin Day" next week and all the kids are to wear orange or black clothing. I know some of the schools around here do allow it, and they even have Halloween parties... So I was just curious what you have seen in terms of schools and celebrating Halloween or not.

DD's school allowed it when she was younger but only during the parade before school ended for the day and they couldn't bring "weapons" or masks. DS is in preschool and they are having a halloween party the night before =)

This is what I would have expected... Something small and within the school dress code. I wonder if it just became too difficult to manage?

They always did a parade and costume party at preschool, and I think DS is missing that this year!

Preschool and 4th grade. They have never worn costumes to school. And they don't have a Halloween party either. It is a fall one and can't have anything Halloween related.
