Halloween Costume Guidelines
All of us at Havel work diligently to teach children how to solve problems in a non-violent way. For Halloween we do not want to see children dressed as perpetrators or victims of violence. This includes props and accessories related to blood, gore, and weapons. Parent, please monitor your child’s costume choices. Keep in mind we don’t want our youngest students frightened by gory or scary costumes. Those should absolutely be avoided. Students whose costume may be too much for our younger students may be asked to not wear their mask or possibly not participate in the parade.
Safety & Security Practice Drill
In accordance with the recommendation from Michigan Department of Education, Utica
Community Schools will continue to conduct practice drills this school year.
Havel Elementary will complete the following drills throughout the school year:
Bus evacuation drills during the fall and again during the spring and include eligible riders as
well as all other students when possible.
Fire Drills (we have completed 2)
Tornado Drills (one scheduled for next week)
Lock Down Drills (we have completed one)
