Student Artwork

We look forward to having a fun day on Halloween! Here are our guidelines and expectations for that school day:

  • 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. Face paint shouldn’t cover more than 50% of the face (again we want to know who you are).
  •  No full face masks are permitted (they may not be worn OR carried)

Classroom Celebration Food Guidelines

This school year, our District is focusing on consistent approaches to student health through the foods that are served during classroom parties and school celebrations. Here are some healthy suggestions for those classes who are including food in their Halloween celebrations. Rattlesnake classes will not be serving refined sugar treats on Halloween. Please pay attention to and follow any food allergy guidelines for your student's classroom in order to keep all students safe.  

  • fresh fruit (grapes, oranges, apples, & strawberries, etc) 
  • fruit kabobs 
  • yogurt parfaits 
  • veggies & dip 
  • cheese cubes & baked crackers 
  • turkey rolls with cream cheese 
  • chex mix (homemade with no nuts)
  • popcorn 
  • finger sandwiches (no peanut butter)
