Halloween Parade and Celebrations
If we deem that the weather is not conducive to an outside parade, the parent parade will be canceled.
Classroom Celebrations will be determined by the classroom teacher.
October 28 is an early out day and students will not attend school on October 29th.
Halloween Costumes Guidelines - please review
- As per our safe school rules, no weapons (real or pretend) are allowed at the school so please do not send any weapons with the costumes.
- No masks are allowed.
- School dress code will be enforced.
- Costumes should not be overtly political, gory or scary to little children or anything that could be interpreted as hate speech, or involve dressing like a different culture or race (cultural misappropriation).
Cultural appropriation would be "taking elements of someone else's culture". We want to be sensitive to all cultures including items that a culture may find spiritual or sensitive. If you have questions please feel free to call the school and we would be happy to help provide guidance.
These standards apply to all teachers, students and parents who dress up in a costume and come to the school for the school parade and the PTA Halloween Dance
Students who attend in a costume that falls under one of the above mentioned categories will either be asked to remove a portion of their costume if possible, or they will call home for a change if needed.
Your help in following these protocols will ensure that our students have a safe and fun Halloween.
