HALLOWEEN ( *Updated directions for Virtual Learners)
Here are the plans for our Reid Halloween Festivities on Friday, Oct. 30.
- We will be having a Halloween parade beginning at 1:40. The parade will leave Reid and travel up Seneca Street to Hegel and back down Clarence Street through the playground parking lot and up the ramp.
- Virtual learners *UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS: You are invited to join the parade if you would like. Please meet at the corner of Seneca and Erie at 1:40 to start our parade. Virtual learners must be accompanied by one adult. Virtual families will end their portion of the parade at the grassy area to the left of the beginning of the ramp on the playground. You will line up in that area to watch the rest of the Reid students walk up the ramp into the school.
- Families are invited to view the Reid parade from anywhere outside along the parade route. Students will be coming up the ramp at the end for a good viewing option.
- Students and families are reminded to practice distancing.
- Parade participants and viewers will be required to wear masks.
- If it rains or snows (it’s MICHIGAN) the parade will be canceled.
- The Parade will be recorded (and later posted to our Reid FB page) if you are unable to attend but would still like to view our costumes.
- Each class will hold their own Halloween festivities in their classrooms. Unfortunately, families are not able to attend.
- Please have your child bring their costume to school. Try to avoid anything that is too difficult for them to put on themselves.
- Please adhere to the following guidelines: NO weapons or gory costumes. Keep in mind we have young children in the building and we want to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and safe.
Reminder: Covid-19 guidelines
With COVID-19 cases in our state increasing, we would like to offer a couple of reminders.
1. If your student is sick or has one primary or two secondary symptom(s) (see list below), please contact your physician before you send them to school.
- Primary Symptoms (1)
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fever (temp > 100.4 F)
- New Loss of taste or smell
- Secondary Symptoms (2)
- Sore throat
- Muscle pain or body aches
- New onset of severe headache
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
- Congestion or runny nose
2. If your student has had a COVID test, they must stay home until the school receives a copy of the negative test result. Also, if your student needs to be tested remember we will only accept a PCR test. Rapid tests are unreliable so the District is not accepting results from a rapid test.
TRUNK or TREAT - POSTPONED UNTIL 10/30. PRESALE REOPENED UNTIL 10/28.
