Halloween Costume Information

October 31: Halloween

Children may wear costumes on Halloween. 

Here are some reminders when helping your child choose his/her costume:

  • Children must be able to use the restroom easily and independently with the costume
  • No face paint
  • No fake weapons to include guns, knives, swords, etc.
  • Please consider letting them choose an older costume that they are not planning on wearing for Trick or Treating because it could easily become torn, soiled etc. during the busy school day. Teachers and staff cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged Halloween costumes.  

Thanks to everyone who supported the 11th Annual 5K & Family Fun Run Fundraiser for our Mosaic Services foundation.
