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!

We will be asking for donations from students whose families are not participating as a trunk but plan on trick or treating at the event. This is not required, but greatly appreciated. All treaters and trunks should pre-register here! Please register by October 20, 2019. Any questions, please contact Jen or Paul Ruffenach at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are in need of volunteers to make this event successful. Please log into your Membership Tool Kit account and select the Volunteer tab. The sign up for Trunk or Treat can be found under Special Events. Thank you!
