The staff want you all to know that we greatly value student voice and are giving you the opportunity to demonstrate how listening to your voices can help to create a positive and fun environment for learning .
Just so everyone remembers:
- All costumes must comply with the school and the Chancellor's dress code!
- Absolutely no weapons!
- No costume that is offensive to a person's race, religion, gender or ethnicity!
- No costume that will prevent you from participating in learning activities in your classes!
- No very big accessories on costumes that can pose a danger to you or others or can get in the way of other students in classes, such as large angel wings!
- No profanity!
Again, I have heard pleas for the last two years about being able to wear costumes on Halloween. This year, Ms. Zinn and I were presented with an impassioned letter from students that detailed a plan for Halloween, including the guidelines listed above. The faculty has decided that because we were presented with a well written plan, more than one day before Halloween, that we would allow costumes this year as a trial. Please make sure that if you choose to wear a costume, it complies with the guidelines. That will enable us to establish a Halloween tradition at our school! Can't wait to see all of your costumes!
Be safe! Share your thoughts about the day!
