There has been a required change to the MEC procedures for Halloween- MEC will now be wearing costumes to school on Tuesday, October 31st. If you prefer, you can still continue to follow our initial plan of having your child wear orange or black.
Here are the important guidelines that will need to be followed for the safety of the children and to help us continue with Reading, Writing and Math instruction on this day:
No masks may be worn.
No weapons (or replicas) may be brought to school (Consequences will be incurred)
No high heels or any footwear should be worn that can cause a safety concern for students
Costumes must be those that can be placed OVER clothing so that the costume can be removed after a period of time (we will have AM K, Full Day k, 1st and 2nd graders wear their costumes from 9-10am, when we will begin instruction for our day. PM kindergarten will wear their costumes from 12:30-1:30). IMPORTANT-Please be sure regular clothing is worn underneath the costume because your child will need to easily take off their costume so that they can utilize the bathroom
Please realize that children who are K-2 are easily scared by some costumes. Please do not have the children wear something that will scare other children.
This will be a celebration for staff and students only.
We greatly appreciate you adhering to these guidelines for the safety of the children and for the integrity of the academic school day. ... See MoreSee Less
