Fall Fun at Carol Stream School
Trunk or Treat- Wednesday, Oct. 27
Who can come? Families of students attending Carol Stream School. We ask that an adult accompany students for the duration of your stay (please no student drop-offs).
What to bring? Wear your costume, but please dress for the weather (it may be cold), consider bringing a flashlight (it gets dark between 6-6:30), as well as a face mask. Students will be provided with a free bag to put their candy in.
Do I need to wear a mask? Since the event is outdoors, face masks are not required. However, if families are unable to space out while outdoors, we do ask you to wear it. The PTA will do their best to promote social distancing (ex: cones), but it will be up to each individual family to ensure they are social distancing.
Does it cost anything? No, this event is free of charge.
Where do I park? Families can either walk to school or they can park along the surrounding streets (ex: Sioux or Thunderbird). For safety, families will not be able to park in the back parking lot.
What safety measures will be taken? We will ask families to check in and provide the name of the student attending CSS. We will use this information in the event we need to conduct contact tracing. We will also strive to promote space for families (ex: spacing out cars and cones for lines). We ask families to consider wearing a mask if they feel they cannot properly social distance. Trunks involving an item that is touched by students will be disinfected in between uses.
Fall Class Parties
Games will need to align with our existing mitigation strategies (ex: students must continue to wear masks, hand sanitize, socially distance).
Parade from 2:45-3pm:
Weather permitting, we will attempt to do a school-wide parade that takes a brief tour outside near doors 9, 1, and 3. Parents are welcome to line the sidewalks near door 1 to view.
- Costumes should be brought to school (please do not send your child to school already wearing their costume) to limit distractions during the instructional portions of the day.
- Any look-alike weapons (guns, knives, swords, clubs, axes, bow/arrow, etc.) should not be a part of the costume and should not be brought to school.
- Please avoid costumes of characters who engage in or promote gore or have fake blood or serious injuries (we have students as young as 5 years old to consider).
- Due to COVID restrictions, students will need to change into their costumes on their own. Students that need privacy (ex: if they cannot put their costume on over their clothes) will be directed to use the bathroom.
Please make sure you've read through the guidelines prior to sending your child to school on Friday, Oct. 29th. Students wearing costumes that do not align with these guidelines may be asked by building administration to remove a portion of or their entire costume.
