From the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As in past years, we will follow our past practices for Halloween celebrations on Thursday, October 31, 2019.  In order to maximize students’ learning and provide a safe atmosphere, we ask that you help your children follow our Halloween guidelines.


  • Celebrations will occur at the discretion of the classroom teacher. 

  • You may be receiving additional information from your child’s individual classroom with details in regards to the classroom happenings.

  • Kindergarteners will continue their annual hallway parade.

Costumes:  Due to varying comfort level and the different ages of our students, the following conditions should be followed:

  • All costumes must be safe for students to wear and safe for other students to see.  This means costumes should not have blood, gore or violent themes. 

  • For safety purposes, we ask that students do NOT wear masks.

  • Kindergarten students may arrive dressed in their costumes. 

  • Grades One through Three:

    • Students will carry their costumes to school.

    • Due to the difficulty of supervising all students at all times, students should be able to put their costumes on over their clothes at the designated classroom time rather than use the bathrooms.

  • Please keep in mind that students often misplace items.  If your child is planning on wearing the same costume on Halloween night as during the school day, it may be best to leave intricate or valuable items or props at home.

Thank you for your willingness to follow through with these guidelines to ensure that all students continue to feel safe during this day.  Your cooperation is vital in establishing a healthy community where our children can learn.
