Gone are the days where kids have a Halloween party with candy, cupcakes, and other holiday treats. Our school district has had a no food policy for a number of years now. Parents have to be a little more creative than throwing 25 tootsie rolls in a bag and calling it a day.
Most kids don’t hand out anything at Halloween in the classroom. You might get a pencil or stickers. Since my kids are sort of famous in October for living in “The Halloween House” I treat their classmates with a small token.
