HIGHLAND PARK, Ill., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- A student at a suburban Chicago high school who wore a Jesus costume Thursday for Halloween was told to remove it by school officials.

The student at Highland Park High School was allowed to resume wearing his toga, cross and crown of thorns after officials decided he did not select the costume to offend, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The school in Highland Park on the North Shore has guidelines for Halloween costumes that try to bar anything offensive or provocative. Students are warned to avoid props that suggest drinking or smoking and anything that would stereotype culture, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religion.

A photo that appears to show the teen in costume was posted Wednesday on Facebook, the Tribune said.

"OH MY GOD(literally), please don't be afraid if u see BLACK JESUS munchin on some pasta tomorrow! HAPPY HALLOWEEN," the accompanying message said.
