Candles in a Classroom?

Candle on desk
When I was a kindergarten teacher, candles were not allowed in my classroom. Luckily, this school was equipped with a fire sprinkler system which extinguished the fire. An unattended candle on a teacher’s desk caught the desk on fire while the class was at an assembly. I’m curious; do schools in your community allow lit candles in the classroom?
