HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

Please keep in mind the following guidelines for costumes at school: We are asking that children not wear costumes depicting violence or violent acts.

Please leave all toy guns, knives and swords at home. Also, please reserve the elaborate costumes, face paint and make-up for trick or treating. Halloween is an exciting time--let’s all help to make sure it is a safe experience for the children. Students will have time to put on costumes in the classroom before the Halloween Parade begins—please do not send students to school wearing costumes. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter!
