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!
