Halloween – No Costumes

  • With the important health and safety requirements in place, this year continues to be one that requires difficult decisions

  • One of those difficult decisions is regarding traditions

  • A decision was made to cancel this year’s annual Halloween Parade (with the goal of having it return in the future)

  • After collaborating with teachers, another difficult decision was made to not wear Halloween costumes – no costumes, please

  • We recognize this may bring disappointment to all students, specifically our younger students, and for that we are equally disappointed

  • We continue to look forward to future Halloweens!

  • Thank you for your support and understanding 


Halloween Spirit Day!

  • Knowing important restrictions bring limits and sometimes the inability to be festive and fun

  • We will not let important restrictions dampen our spirits!

  • As a result, bring on your Halloween spirit!

  • Friday, October 30th – you are encouraged to wear Halloween colors (i.e. black, orange, green, purple) or an appropriate Halloween shirt!

  • Happy Halloween!
