The Friday Forecast

THE WEEK Of October 31 - November 4, 2022


Halloween is approaching and as always, we will allow students to rock their Halloween costumes on Monday, October 31. Below are some guidelines we must follow to ensure student safety:

  • Students are PROHIBITED from wearing costume masks that cover their entire face.
  • Make-up or face paint should be minimal. Staff needs to still be able to EASILY identify a student wearing make-up or face paint.
  • Weapons, or replica weapons are PROHIBITED.
  • Costumes need to adhere to the school dress code. (NO costume should be ethnically or culturally offensive, gang-related in any manner or form, sexually explicit or offensive, in poor taste, illegal or drug, alcohol or tobacco-related)

If you have any questions regarding your costume, please see your GLC before Halloween for guidance and approval.

Thank you for your cooperation Mustangs! We look forward to a fun and safe Halloween on campus!
