Halloween Costume Guidelines

With October knocking on our door and the excitement of picking out a Halloween costume please keep in mind the following:

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.

Halloween Treats

All of our classrooms are peanut and tree nut safe. As is our building practice, no CANDY CONTAINING these ingredients will be allowed. As Halloween gets closer, please contact your child's teacher for specific items/food that may be needed for the party. HOMEMADE GOODS are not allowed in the classrooms. Thank you for helping us maintain a safe environment for all our students.

Community Schools will continue to conduct practice drills this school year.
