Halloween Parade on Friday, October 29, 2021

Come and watch our students march in their costume parade for Halloween on Friday, October 29th. Parade will start at 8:35 AM. Our students will be walking on the sidewalk around the back field. We are asking that parents/guardians stand or sit on the grass field, on the dirt edge of the walkway, or safely on the street to allow plenty of room for our students.

Please be courteous and mindful of the area, and all should wear face masks over mouth and nose. Consider bringing a chair for your comfort and your camera to take photos. We are excited to see you there!
