Halloween at School 2021

  • Parade: A short Halloween Parade will take place beginning at 10:00AM on Friday, October 29th. Weather permitting, we will parade out the main doors and parade around the building. Families are welcome to come and watch our costume parade outdoors and take pictures. PLEASE NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, our parade will be canceled.

  • Classroom Activities: Classrooms/grade levels will be planning for Halloween activities either before or after the parade. If teachers request parent volunteers to help facilitate the classroom activities, all volunteers will have to submit a Background Check and a Volunteer Code of Ethics Form. Stay tuned for more information from you child's teacher regarding Halloween activities.

  • Costumes: Students may come to school in costume on Friday, October 29. (We don't have enough staff/ space for students to change at school.)They can stay in costume for the duration of the day. Costumes need to be school appropriate and cannot depict violence or blood/gore. No fake weapons are allowed in school (i.e. toy guns, swords, blades, etc). Costume masks can be worn for the parade (as long as students can safely see), but they may not be worn throughout the day. For costumes that have short skirts/shorts, leggings or pants need to be worn underneath.

Congratulations to our 21-22 Student Council Representatives!
