RUMSON - Rumors of bullying prompted school officials at a Monmouth County School to cancel a popular homecoming tradition Friday.

Homecoming festivities went on as scheduled at Rumson Fair Haven High School. However, there was no homecoming king or queen crowned this year after school officials learned that students were going to vote in two people who would later become the subject of ridicule.

Some parents said it was sad for the kids who have been waiting for the honor. 

October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. New Jersey has some of the strictest school bullying regulations in the country.
