Halloween Wednesday, October 31st

As the time draws near for Halloween, and ensure a safe school day, we wanted to send a reminder of the following guidelines for all students and staff of Combs High School who choose to wear a Halloween costume. We are asking that students and staff not wear masks or face paint that covers their face and their identity. Students can not bring simulated weapons at any time on campus. The CHS dress code will be in place and we would like to thank you in advance for your help as we plan for this holiday.
