Our annual festivities will begin with a parade on Thursday, October 31st starting at 2:30 p.m. Please see Halloween Letter 2019 - RHE for more information. Parents may cheer on our costumed students on the side playground. For school security and safety reasons, parents who are coming for the parade are not permitted inside the school. Only those parents who are RHHSA Homeroom Liaisons will be permitted to help with the party. We love when parents come to the parade in costume; however, we ask that parents not wear masks that disguise their identity. Please remember that costumes incorporating weapons and/or depicting violence are not appropriate to bring to school. Our school strives for a climate of non-violence. Your support is greatly appreciated!
