CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Students in Skokie-Morton Grove School District 69 will not celebrate Halloween this year.

The school district has posted a message on its website saying Halloween will not be celebrated this year because of what it calls cultural, religious and economic reasons.

School officials said a growing number of students have either stayed home or been offered alternate activities because they feel uncomfortable with the celebration.

Parents are being told not to send children to school with candy or dressed in Halloween outfits.
