- Costumes must be school and age appropriate and NOT depict any type of violence, blood or gore.
- No items may be brought that depict any sort of weapon.
- If your child’s costume involves a mask, they must be able to clearly see out of the mask.
- Covid masks must be worn by students, staff and parents
- Parents will be invited on campus, and must utilize the parent area that will be provided.
- Students must have on school clothing under costume. Students will not be permitted to change clothes in the bathrooms or classrooms. Send child to school with a bag, with their name on it to store costume after parade.
- Parents will need to exit the campus after the parade and will not be permitted to go to the classrooms or any other buildings.
- If your child’s costume is not impeding (can move about freely and safely) or distracting, it may be worn for the remainder of the day (school is not responsible for any damage to the costume).
