Our Halloween Parade is outside on Friday, October 30th at 2:20 PM.
Parents who are in classrooms will be asked to leave and go outside by 2:00 PM. Students will exit via the front doors with their teacher. From there, they will loop around the entire building twice (from the front to the teacher parking lot, around the back lot through the playground area and past the Kindergarten doors). After walking around the school twice the students will reenter through the front doors. Adults coming for the parade must park next door in the Little League parking area and walk over to the school. You may line up around the entire building. In the event of rain, the parade will be cancelled. Costumes and makeup may be worn to school. Masks will be permitted during the parade. PARENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DROP OFF COSTUMES OR COMPONENTS NOR WILL PARENTS BE ALLOWED TO COME IN AND APPLY MAKEUP, COMB HAIR, ETC. Please do not have your child bring in or wear something that will be a distraction or dangerous, such as swords, guns, etc. Until 2:20 it is a “normal” school day so the costume should be easy enough for them to function throughout the day. Wearing a costume is completely optional.
“Foods of Minimum Nutritional Value” (policy on our website) cannot be served, sold or given away during school hours. If you feel the need to send something in, consider pencils, stickers, etc. If a treat is sent in, ingredients/menu must be checked by Mr. Graziano and Mrs. Andril one week before sending it in. Foods in which sugar is the first ingredient are not permitted and will not be distributed if sent in to school. We ask that peanut and tree nuts be avoided.
I realize many of you would like to take your children home after the parade, however, after the parade, students will return inside to pack for the day. NO ADULTS will be allowed to enter. IN THE MORNING please write a note to your child’s teacher indicating if you will be picking them up at 3:00 PM. PLEASE DO NOT PLAN TO CALL OR EMAIL the school on the 30th for dismissal instructions unless it is an emergency. Once students re-enter the building after the parade they will go back to their classroom for dismissal at 3:00 PM. Busses and aftercare will operate as normal.
Thank you so much in advance for your cooperation.
