No Underpants on Halloween

In the spirit of Halloween, we just wanted to remind students (and educators!) to think carefully about the costumes they’re wearing to school. This Associated Press story posted by the Washington Post details the goings on at Long Beach High School in Long Beach, N.Y., where three female students were sent home to change after they dressed up like storybook hero Captain Underpants. As you might guess, Captain Underpants wears his undergarments where everyone can see them, but the school’s principal did not appreciate the view.
