We Are... Wildcats!
October 14th, 2020
Dear Weiss Families,
Halloween is always a fun, exciting, and busy time in Elementary School. We are determined to create a great opportunity at school this year, although it will look very different. The biggest and toughest decision we have to make is to not have parades of any kind this year for Halloween or allow parents into our school to volunteer with classroom parties. Your child’s classroom teacher will provide you with information on if there is anything you can send into the classroom to help create a safe and fun Halloween celebration.
Students will be allowed to wear their school appropriate costumes with NO costume masks and no props on Friday, October 30th with the following guidelines:
-Please consider a simple costume for school on the 30th. Students will come to school in their Halloween costume and be wearing it the whole day. Students will also be eating in their costume.
-Students will need to be able to use the bathroom independently while wearing their costumes.
-Please choose a costume that does not reflect violence. Inappropriate “props” such as Dracula's blood, plastic swords, guns, knives, and weapons of any kind are not allowed even if they are a part of your child’s costume. Please save them for supervised activities at home.
-No costume masks will be allowed as our students will be required to wear their COVID-19 face coverings. There are COVID 19 masks that are Halloween themed and those can be worn. See picture example below
-It is important that students can easily get in and out of the car with their costume on. If your child can't exit and enter the car without adult support in their costume, then the costume would not be appropriate for School Halloween 2020.
Detailed information by classroom and grade level will come directly from your child's classroom teacher.
