Some guidelines to discuss with children:
• We encourage children to bring costumes to school in a disposable bag, clearly marked with the child’s name. Costumes should not be worn to school. Students will put on costumes just prior to the parade.
•Children should not wear make-up to school. Students can put on make-up prior to the parade. Please have your children wear appropriate make-up that is not too scary. Any hair products do need to be applied at home.
•To prevent frightening younger children, please refrain from costumes, masks, or make-up depicting blood and other gruesome configurations.
•Weapons such as guns, (even toys) swords, and hatchets will NOT be allowed.
•Costume suggestions: characters from children’s literature, athletes, community figures (firefighters, nurses, bakers, etc.)
•Parents are also encouraged to discuss the guidelines with their children.
•Parents helping with the parties and parents/relatives coming up to watch the parade should sign in and wear a name tag.
