Halloween

Students will be allowed to wear costumes to school on Tuesday, October 31st.  Below are the guidelines for costumes.  Students who choose to dress up must arrive in their costumes—no changing into costumes at school.  Items such as face paint, hairspray, etc. may be used at home, but may not be brought to school. Costumes must still allow students to participate in all classroom activities, including PE.  For example, inflatable costumes are not allowed. Students must not bring dangerous objects of any kind, including fake or look-alike weapons.  

Masks and face paint covering the whole face are not allowed, as we need to be able to identify students.  

All costumes must comply with school dress guideline including:

  • No inappropriate messages

  • No offensive, violent or culturally insensitive costumes or messages.

  • Costumes may not be demeaning to any ethnic group, race, religion, nationality, disability, gender or individual. 

  • Costumes may not cause a disruption or distraction to the school program.

  • No weapons, toy weapons, or props replicating weapons. 

  • Costumes may not show obscene materials or prohibited substances.

All costumes must be appropriate for school and follow school rules, including dress code guidelines.  

If you have any questions about costumes, please ask Mrs. Hernandez or Mr. Gillis ahead of time.
