The middle school invites all students and staff to participate in dressing up for Halloween this Oct. 31!

·       Costumes must be appropriate for school and should not be offensive.

·       Costumes cannot mock or resemble another student, faculty member or religious preference.

·       The middle school dress code will be enforced.

·       Students cannot bring props including plastic swords/knives, guns, bows, arrows, wands, etc.

·       Masks, face paints, or any item that makes it difficult to determine a student’s identity is not allowed.

·       Students must come to school already dressed; all hair and make-up must be done at home.

·       Costumes should not be disruptive to the educational process and should be comfortable enough to wear for the duration of the day.

 

If a student’s costume is deemed inappropriate, he/she will be asked to change.  Any questions regarding the appropriateness of a costume idea should be addressed to middle school administration.
