HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

The Halloween season is upon us. As students plan the costume they will wear to school for their parties we have two restrictions. NO blood or weapons will be allowed as parts of the costume students wear to school. There are various reasons for this, among them a desire to reinforce the ban on weapons in schools (even pretend ones) and a desire to deemphasize the gore without hurting the excitement of the day. Parties will be held in the classrooms on Thursday, October 31.
