On this day all Kindergarteners will attend school from 8:15am-11:35am and Grades 1-5 will attend school from 8:25am and dismiss at 12:40pm.

There will be a school-wide costume parade for grades K-5 on the sidewalk around the back field beginning at 8:35am.

In order to ensure the acceptable practices of this event, guidelines are listed below:

  1. If choosing to wear a costume, student will dress at home and wear their costumes to school.
  2. Costume choices and accessories are to be age-appropriate and safe.
  3. Students should not wear artificial blood or face paint.
  4. No toy guns or replica weapons allowed. These will be confiscated and held in the office until the end of the school day for parent pick-up.
  5. Costumes and masks that depict the results of violent acts or unnecessarily grotesque images are not allowed. 

If you are coming to the parade or a class party, please park your car on the street due to limited on-site parking and crowded conditions.
