We will have our Halloween parade on Thursday, October 31 at 2:45 PM. Students will exit door 12, walk around the school and re-enter door 12. Students will be dismissed at the normal dismissal time. A few reminders: Students need to bring their costumes to school. They will be given sufficient time to change into their costumes. Students will not be allowed to wear their masks or have costumes that include: fake weapons, blood, gore or any obscenities. If there is inclement weather on Wednesday, the Halloween parade will be held inside for staff and students only. Let's hope for good weather!
