Parent groups and teachers were consulted about the decision. But some parents are upset and one mom has started an online petition to overturn the ban.
"I am not a Grinch; I was a child once and I also celebrated Halloween, typically when trick-or-treaters knock on my door I do the customary Halloween thing," Principal Tracy Cochran said.
"I would have voted for them to have the parade here because it's a day to let the kids have fun," parent Dion Saunders said. "I know a lot of people don't celebrate Halloween but there's ones that do."
The principal says only 25 parents from the school's 560 families have signed the petition.
