Students are invited to wear costumes to school on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. Please observe the following:
- We encourage students to come in their costumes if they choose to wear them for the day. We will not be able to allow students to change into costumes in the afternoon.
- Costume-related masks may only be worn during the parade.
- Make-up is discouraged for this day. If worn, make-up is not to be touched-up or applied at school. Students who wear make-up to school should use care to keep their make-up neat and avoid getting make-up on school surfaces or their clothes.
- Fake weapons are not allowed.
We will have a Nevada Day/Halloween costume parade that day at 2:00 p.m. We are welcoming families to join us for this event. We will open the gate at the parking lot/field area (Battista Gate) and the gate by the basketball courts on Bermuda at 1:50 p.m. All visitors are to enter at a gate and then head to the main playground to spread out to watch the parade without blocking the walking path. After the parade, we request families to depart campus as quickly as possible so gates can be secured. Please, no school-age children are to attend the costume parade (middle school and high school students). Families who bring younger non-school-age children, please consider the length of the event and your child’s needs. We expect any younger siblings to demonstrate appropriate school behavior, and we ask parents/guardians to closely supervise younger siblings at all times. Please refrain from allowing younger siblings to play on the playground as this event is focused on our students. We appreciate you picking up students following the usual dismissal routine this day.
Classes will return to their rooms after the parade and enjoy a Nevada Day/Halloween celebration. Please refer to additional information from your child’s teacher for information about this celebration. Family members will not be allowed to join the classroom celebrations as they are for students only.
