Halloween Parade Canceled

We regret to inform you, but we will not be hosting a Halloween parade this year out of an abundance of caution for the safety of students and staff. While we know this is an event many look forward to, it is not the safest option at this time. Students however, are able to wear costumes to school on Friday, October 29 and classrooms will have time allocated to celebrate in their classrooms.
