We are so excited to invite parent on campus Friday, October 28, 2022 for our Halloween parade. The parade will begin at 8:30 am. To ensure the parade takes place in a safe and orderly manner, we have a few rules for viewers to follow:

  • There will be two parent viewing areas (see map below). You may enter the campus through either the 3rd or 4th Street gates which will lead directly to the parent viewing areas.
  • Parents are not allowed to go to classes for any reason. Students should be able to dress/undress themselves.
  • Please do not prompt students to stop for pictures while in the parade line as this will impact the flow of the parade.
  • Once the parade is over, quickly exit the campus so the school day can get back to normal.
  • Students may have a change of clothes under their costume is they would like to change after the parade.

Thank you in advance for following these simple guidelines. Have fun!
