HALLOWEEN COSTUME POLICY

Students are welcome to wear Halloween costumes to school on Friday, October 31. Please use the following guidelines to ensure your student comes to school appropriately attired. Students wearing inappropriate clothing or costumes will be sent to the office to call home for a change of clothes.
  • All costume preparations are to be completed at home (No dressing or applying of make-up or colored hairspray once students arrive at school).
  • No masks are to be worn during the school day.
  • No costumes that depict violence or violent characters.
  • No costumes that promote the use of illegal substances or activities, or are derogatory or disrespectful.
  • No big props (swords, weapons, wands, etc.).

Teachers may take away anything that is used improperly or is considered inappropriate for school; students can claim the items in the main office at the end of the school day.

HERE.

REMEMBER: Completed P.E. Waiver forms are due no later than December 1, 2014.  Students have until the end of the school year to complete their hours, but you must submit a completion plan no later than December 1, 2014.

Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey
Our district is participating in the Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 13th – 17th.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
