Halloween Costumes: Dressing for Halloween is a fun and festive part of October that many of our students and staff are looking forward to. The following guidelines have been created for those who choose to dress up for Halloween on Monday, October 31 (not required). If you would not like your child to participate, please let your teacher know and we will have a place for them to wait, until it is recess time:

  • If students are going to wear a costume, they must wear it to school. Students will not be permitted to change into their costumes or apply makeup or hairspray at school. All costume preparations must be completed at home. Students must be able to wear their costume inside or outside, at recess, and during P.E.

  • Costumes must not interfere with learning, movement or using the restroom (no adult support will be available at school to assist with costumes)

  • Costumes must not interfere with the ability to wear a protective face covering (mask) if students choose to wear one.

  • Dress code-- all regular Warm Springs and District dress code policies apply: including, no “revealing” clothing, appropriate shoes must be worn, etc. On this day only, students may wear hats inside as part of their costumes.

  • Violence – no pretend “prop” weapons such as guns, knives, or swords, and no blood or gore

  • Age Appropriateness – costumes cannot promote the use of drugs, alcohol, or violence of any kind

  • Consideration of others – costumes must not make fun of others or perpetuate a stereotype of someone’s culture, gender, heritage, or religion 

  • Students who wear costumes that do not conform to the costume guidelines will be asked to change their clothing or call home to acquire an appropriate alternative
