You won't see little ghouls and goblins running around one Massachusetts elementary school this Halloween.
The Boston Herald reports that the principal has banned costumes.

It's not the only holiday on the chopping block.

Does the principal have a valid point here or is she going overboard by pushing her own beliefs on teachers and students?
