An elementary school in Centereach, New York canceled a mock presidential election after students began chanting "Trump," according to the Washington Times.
Jericho Elementary School traditionally holds a mock presidential election, but school officials decided to cancel the event due to students chanting "Trump" for the Republican nominee in the cafeteria.
According to the school's principal, Glen Rogers, students have also repeated "negative rhetoric about minorities."
"Teachers have said they've heard some kids in the cafeteria chanting ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!' or saying they don't want Muslims here," Rogers told ABC News.
"I mean, kids often repeat what they hear on the TV or the news, but it doesn't mean it's OK," he added. "We have a diverse community here. We want all our students to feel valued."
Fifth grader Miranda Water told a local ABC News affiliate that she did not like the negativity surrounding the presidential campaign.
"Some people think Clinton's not good. Some think Trump's not good. So there's a lot of arguments going on, and I don't like that," she said.
Students at Jericho Elementary will vote on their favorite school lunches instead of holding a mock presidential election.
