    Costumer Questions: Answered

    Any family that is interested in their child wearing a costume on

    Monday 10/31 is welcome to do so. However, there are some

    guidelines that we would like to put in place.

    Please ensure that the selected costume:

    • Adheres to the school dress guidelines and is school appropriate
    • Has no blood or gore
    • Is not scary
    • Does not include props, any props brought to school will be

                                      stored for students until the end of the day.

    Thank you all so much!
