Halloween Information

Halloween parties and parade will take place on Friday, October 29th. The parade will start in the early morning, so please send your child to school in their costume. More information regarding the parade will be shared closer to the event. If you do not want your child to participate in these activities, please advise your child’s teacher. Parents will not be permitted to join classroom parties, but we hope you can join us to watch the parade! Our PTO is also hosting a Trunk or Treat that night.

Halloween Costumes - As you guide your child in planning a costume, please keep in mind that we would appreciate your cooperation in planning something that is not ghoulish, morbid, or offensive to any culture or particular group of people. Also, no toy guns, knives or weapons are permitted. This may mean that you have to leave some components of your child’s costume at home. We encourage parents to continue our costume theme of positive role models. We want to work to provide a positive experience for our students. Thank you for your cooperation!

Halloween Class Celebrations - Classroom teachers will conduct activities within their classroom. Our PTO will provide students with a donut to be eaten during their normal snack time as a Halloween treat. Please communicate with your child’s classroom teacher if you need to share information regarding food allergies. Please know that parents are not permitted to join the class party. Please remember that parents are not permitted in the school.
