We'll celebrate Halloween at school on Wednesday, October 28 (A-K students) and Friday, October 30 (L-Z students). Our celebration will be a little different this year given our need to work within certain safety and health constraints.

Here is what students can look forward to:

  • In class that day, we'll do a STEM project to wrap-up our non-fiction study of bats. 
    • Please note, the majority of our day will be a regular school day! 
  • The Rattlesnake PTA has generously donated a healthy treat for each student, which kids will bring home at the end of the day. 
    • Please do not send any additional snacks or candy. 
  • Students may wear a costume, PJs or their regular clothes to school.

If your student chooses to wear a costume, please help them follow these guidelines: 

  • Come to school in costume and wear it all day (this will minimize clusters of students changing in the restroom)
  • Make sure your costume is comfortable enough to wear all day.
  • Since you'll be in costume all day, please no blow up/air filled costumes and no facepaint.
  • Please wear your cloth or paper mask all day, just like normal.

Additionally the student handbook says:

  • Costumes must conform to the Rattlesnake School Dress Code.
  • Costumes may not be demeaning to any ethnic group, race, religion, nationality, disabilities, gender, or individual (staff or student) at the school.
  • Costumes may not cause a disruption or distraction to the school program.
  • No weapons, toy weapons, or props replicating weapons (sorry no light sabers either!) are to be brought to school.
  • No costumes are allowed that would completely hide the identity of the student, i.e. Hazmat suit, gorilla suit, "Scream" character. No facepaint. 
  •  No full face costume masks are permitted (they may not be worn OR carried)

I'll talk about this with students the week of October 19. Free Jack O Lantern Clipart Pictures - Clipartix
