Halloween stories about the Los Altos School District

Los Altos, California is a small San Francisco Bay Area town that made national news back in October 1995 when the school district decided to ban Halloween celebrations. The following stories appeared in the San Jose Mercury News.

The most pertinent of these are the 10/17/1995 front page article and the 10/18/1995 local article. They show that the school board actually reached a really moderate decision.
