On October 31st, all students are welcome to dress out of uniform in costume for Halloween. Students are encouraged to wear costumes that allow free movement and play. No masks may be worn over the face. Props/weapons are not permitted.
Students in grade PK through 3rd grade will participate in a Halloween Parade at 2 p.m. All Virtus certified family and friends are welcome to attend. Pre-registration will be required.
Because we utilize all exterior parking lots for the parade, the campus will be closed to any incoming or outgoing traffic from 1:45 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. that day. Any early pick-ups or other business where access to the school is required should be scheduled before 1:45 p.m. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
