Halloween Costume Guidlines

 Please keep the following guidelines in mind when putting together your costume.

  • All costumes are to be appropriate for school and should not be offensive in design or intent.
  • Costumes cannot mock or resemble another student, faculty member or religious preference.
  • Costumes cannot feature inappropriate themes or characters or reference drugs/alcohol etc.
  • Costumes cannot be sexually explicit in nature.
  • Props  including plastic swords, guns, wands, bows, arrows, etc. are not permitted.   If brought to school, these items will be held in the office until a parent/guardian can pick them up.
  • Masks, face paint, or any item that may impede vision or make it difficult to determine a student’s identity is not allowed.
  • Makeup or hair coloring should be applied at home.  These items are not permitted in school.
  • Please avoid costumes that are overly scary, including any variance of a clown costume.
  • Please note that our school dress code will still be enforced.
  • Costumes cannot interfere with daily responsibilities, both in and out of the class.  Costumes should be comfortable enough to wear for the entire duration of the school day.

If a student’s costume is found to be inappropriate, she/he will be asked to remove the costume.

If you have any questions regarding the appropriateness of a particular costume idea, please do not hesitate to speak with your Guidance Counselor or School Administration.
