On October 31, all Halloween class parties will be held after lunch, aside from morning Kindergarten which will be held in the morning. The costume parade will be held at 12:30 pm and all students are welcome. Please note that students are strongly urged to go home for lunch on Halloween. If children cannot go home for lunch, please send their costume with them to school. Weapons are prohibited and costumes with excessive gore and blood are highly discouraged as it is bothersome to some of our younger students. If a portion of a costume is deemed inappropriate, a student will be asked to remove that portion of the costume. Please be mindful that inflatable costumes are not only difficult to manage, but classroom space is limited. Although these types of costumes are appropriate for trick-or-treating, we would prefer they not be worn for classroom Halloween activities. We appreciate your attention to this request.
