GLOVER — It was standing room only at Glover Community School Monday night as community members crowded into a classroom to talk to the school board about the news that there won’t be a Halloween celebration at the school this year.

About 25 people showed up at the school board meeting, along with Orleans Central Supervisory Union (OCSU) Superintendent Donald Van Nostrand, Principal Angelique Brown, and some faculty members.

In addition, Christina Borland has started an online petition asking that “holiday celebrations that have become community traditions within our school be reinstated.

“We understand that the school is a place for education, but that education must also include community education goals as well as academic goals,” the petition says, in part.
