Halloween Information & Guidelines

Friday, October 29th

Parade 2:15 pm

Party: Following Parade

Note: Due to the parade and parties, our parking lot and front drive will be very congested at dismissal. Please remember to use a single lane for constant traffic flow. Drive through as far as you can before stopping to pick up your child. Drive slowly and be extra patient. Thank you all for your time and efforts in making our Halloween parade and parties a fun and safe activity.

Common Questions:

1. Can my child wear their costume to school?

We encourage children to bring costumes to school in a disposable bag (example: grocery sack), clearly marked with the child’s name. Costumes should not be worn to school. Students will put on costumes before the parade starts. Parents who attended the Parent Volunteer Party Planning Meeting and Rockwell staff will be available to assist younger students.

2. What kind of costumes can my child wear?

Wear costumes that your child can sit and move in during the party activities. We ask that the costumes be age appropriate and not hurt or embarrass fellow students. Please refrain from costumes that are gruesome. We ask that there not be make-up depicting blood and other suggestions of violence. *** If your child(ren) are in need of Halloween costumes please call the office at 715-8246. ***

3. Can my child bring anything that resembles a weapon?

No, please do not send these items to school. Anything resembling a weapon such as guns, swords, hatchets, etc. will be kept by the teacher and the parent will need to pick it up from the principal.

4. May I send extra treats?

We ask that the treats NOT be sent with your child. If that is something you want to do, please let the teacher know and she will have you contact the room parent. **ALL treats MUST be STORE bought, unopened and include an ingredient label on the package (as per District Guidelines.)**

5. Can parents and guardians come to help at the party?

For Preschool- Please see communication coming home from your child’s teacher. For all other grades K-5- only the designated room parents who attended the Parent Volunteer Party meeting and signed up to help may come to help in the classroom as there is not enough room in the classrooms for additional parents and/or siblings.

6. Can parents & guardians come to watch the parade? ALL parents and guardians are welcome to watch the parade... weather permitting.

7. Where can I watch the parade?

You can sit on the cement circular area in front of the school or along the cement walls weather permitting. Students will parade through this area.

8. What if it rains?

We will parade through classrooms as usual and then back to class. Unfortunately, if it rains, parents will not be able to watch the parade.

We will teach school on October 29th. The parade and party are an optional choice for families due to personal reasons. Parents may ask for their child to be excused in the afternoon for the parade and party but you will need to send a note to Mrs. Rozelle. If a child does not come to school at all that day, a full day’s absence will be recorded; likewise, if a child leaves at noon prior to the parade and party, then half day absence will be recorded.
