Lafayette School

October 23rd

The Lafayette PTO Green Team is starting a monthly newsletter filled with activities to connect us with our community and the world. Every month, we will sponsor a Scavenger Hunt or other contest for all LAF students. Prizes will be awarded monthly and winners announced on Lafayette Live.

Halloween @ LAF

  • Information about the parade route and where parents can watch the parade safely will be coming to you on Tuesday.
  • All virtual students are welcome to attend the parade. Please meet us in the back of the school by 11:20 a.m.
  • Craft Materials and Game packets have been assembled for all students. Thank you PTO.
  • On Tuesday, parents of students attending virtually may stop by LAF to pick up a Halloween Craft and Game Kit.

If you have to ask if a costume is okay to wear, it probably is not. Please adhere to the guidelines that have been listed below.

Costume Guidelines:

  • Students should come to school in their costumes

  • Costumes that blow up and take up a lot of space are not allowed in school.

  • A costume mask does not take the place of the masks we wear on a daily basis.

  • All accessories should be left at home due the fact that many of these items are often left behind.

  • Costumes cannot promote the use of drugs, alcohol or weapons of any kind.

  • No pretend “prop” weapons such as water pistols, knives or swords.

  • Costumes may not be offensive or inappropriate in any way.

  • Students choosing to wear costumes must be able to sit at their desk without distracting others and participate fully in all class activities.

Food: Students will bring their own snacks to the party. As with any snack that is being sent to school, the 'special snack' must be a snack that is permitted in the classroom/school safe snack, ie, peanut/tree nut free.
