All students are invited to dress up in costumes for Halloween tomorrow, Friday, October 30th.  While we want students to have fun, please use the following guidelines when choosing an appropriate costume for school. If your child is not comfortable wearing a costume they are welcome to wear black and orange for the day to join in the festive nature of Halloween.

If possible, send your child to school in a spare/used/older costume in the event it becomes damaged. You may also send a change of clothes for your child for the afternoon as many children are not comfortable being in a costume all day long.

Your child will be attending class, participating in physical education, going outside for recess breaks, and eating their snacks/lunch in their costume – they need to be able to move comfortably.

The only mask your child can wear is their usual COVID covering. Costumes should not include face masks, weapons, blood, violent or offensive content to allow for the day to be enjoyable for all age groups in our school community.  Students are asked not to bring weapons or wear masks (other than the mandatory COVID-19 masks).

Unfortunately, there will be no sharing of treats this year of any kind. This includes candy, prepackaged treats, stickers, pencils, etc. We know that times are challenging for students right now. However, thanks to the efforts we have all made to this point, school continues to be a positive and safe space for all members of our community. Let’s continue to do the right thing even when it isn’t the popular or preferred thing.

Your understanding and cooperation are genuinely appreciated.
