Parade: The parade will be at 9:00, so please have your students wear their costumes to school. Watch from home: parents will be sent a link to a YouTube live streaming session. On-campus children: Parents are welcome to bring camping chairs or blankets and set them up along the outside of either building (the yellow dots indicate where families can sit). Everyone watching the parade on campus needs to be wearing a mask and should position themselves as close to the building as possible to allow our students to parade on the sidewalks surrounding the schools. Families should also allow six feet between them and neighboring families. **Costumes should be modest and without blood or gore. Also, face coverings must be worn throughout the entire day. Students are welcome to paint their faces and wear Halloween masks; however, those masks will only be worn when directed to do so by the classroom teacher (e.g. during the parade, when a class picture is taken, etc). Weapons and anything that depicts violence are not allowed on school property (knives, guns, swords, spears, etc.).
