GLOUCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts elementary school principal says it was disrespectful and inappropriate that a game brought in for a student Halloween party featured a tombstone with the name Don Trump on it.

The tombstone was one of several on a game brought in by a parent for the party at West Parish Elementary on Friday. The others had joke names, like Seymour Butts and Gull E. Bull on them.

In a letter to parents Sunday, West Parish Principal Telena Imel wrote that the game was intended to be humorous but “inappropriately brought a political agenda into what was designed to be a fun family affair.”

She wrote that some people felt uncomfortable and school is not the place for politics.

Superintendent Richard Safier told the Gloucester Daily Times he’s investigating.
