Halloween Parade

Our annual Halloween parade will take place on Tuesday, October 31st. All students and children at Hemlock Elementary and K.C. Ling Elementary will be walking in the parade, which will begin at 1:45 p.m. Parents wishing to watch their child walk in the parade are being asked to line up along the paved bus loop at K.C. Ling Elementary. In the event of inclement weather, accommodations will be made to host a modified parade in the gymnasium at the same time. Any child or student that wishes to dress up for the parade should bring their school-appropriate costume to school in a bag. For safety purposes, all weapon-like accessories should remain at home. At the conclusion of the parade, all students will return to their classrooms with their teachers to gather their belongings before following the normal dismissal routine. If you plan to take your child home early, please sign them out in the office before leaving.
