Halloween 2021

On Friday, October 29, Simmons Elementary School students will be having Halloween activities and parties in their classrooms. Your child’s teacher will send home more specific information about their class activities. Please take a moment to review the information below regarding our holiday plan.

2:15 – 2:30 p.m. Preschool, Kindergarten and Grade 1 Parade on the playground

For the parade, family members are welcome to gather around the perimeter of the blacktop. Classes will exit the school from the overhang door, walk around the playground, then return to the school. Please allow extra time to park in a legal parking spot prior to the parade. If the weather is rainy on October 29th, the outdoor parade will be cancelled. An email notification will be sent to families before noon if we need to cancel the parade.

2:30 p.m. Preschool through Grade 5 classroom parties

This year, we will not utilize adult volunteers in the classrooms for parties to limit the number of people in classrooms due to the pandemic. The Home and School Association will be using a Sign Up Genius form if your family would like to donate snacks for the parties. All food items sent in should be store bought and individually packaged.


If your child’s class is dressing up for Halloween, please remember that all costumes need to be appropriate for an elementary school setting. No face paint, hair dye or weapons should be brought to school as part of a costume. Thank you for helping us make this event fun and safe for everyone.
