Halloween Parade...

Parents/Guardians are invited to attend the Halloween Parade - Weather Permitting! If the weather is cooperative, the students and staff will parade across the front of the building two times to wave at all of our guests! Visitors will not be permitted in the school building. Please also be ready to snap your picture as your child passes by, as the line will need to keep moving!

Getting Ready for Halloween!

In our efforts to ensure a safe and enjoyable Halloween, the following information is being provided to help guide Halloween shopping. More information regarding Halloween festivities will be forthcoming:

  • Please do NOT send in goodie bags or treats for your child to distribute to his/her classmates.
  • Costume rules that MUST be followed:
    • Arrive at school in his/her costume. Staff will NOT be able to help children get dressed in their costumes.
    • Face Mask (for Covid-19 purposes) MUST be worn.
    • ABSOLUTELY NO Face Paint or Make up can be worn on the face!!!!! If your child comes to school with their face painted, they will need to wash it off at school.
    • No props should come to school (i.e. baskets, toy weapons/swords, etc).
    • Your child should be able to INDEPENDENTLY get in and out of his/her costume to go to the bathroom.
    • When selecting costumes, I would ask that consideration be given for the age range of our students (Kindergarten - Grade 4). Please refrain from any costumes that have the potential to scare our youngest students.
    • NOTE: Students should be able to sit down in their costumes. As a result, the costumes that have motors to inflate them are not a good option for school, but would perfect for your Saturday trick or treating expeditions.
