Following Halloween, the faces of jack-o-lanterns droop forlornly as their flesh turns to mush, but the fun doesn’t have to end.

South Whidbey School Farms wants those rotting pumpkins. The farm and culinary program uses them for season-end classes about decomposition and life cycles, the school district reported.

People can bring their forlorn pumpkins to school this week, ending with Nov. 8.

People should place their pumpkins in a truck or cart parked in front of the elementary school and South Campus during both morning and afternoon pickups.
