For many of our students, Halloween can be a fun and exciting time. To keep our celebrations fun for all, we ask families to ensure that their children’s costume follows District guidelines (if they are wearing it to school on Tuesday, October 31). Please refer to communications from your child’s school for any school-specific information.
The District does not have an official policy regarding Halloween costumes, instead we ask that everyone be respectful and mindful of others by following the guidelines below.
- Students must be identifiable and visible to ensure safety.
- Masks are not permitted. Face makeup is permitted provided the student is still identifiable.
- Scary clowns are not permitted.
- Costumes that depict violence, alcohol or drugs are not appropriate.
- Fake weapons are not permitted.
- Costumes that are provocative, sexual in nature or employ questionable props are not permitted.
- Costumes should not hinder a student’s ability to travel through the school and outdoor space safely.
Please remember that costumes, even with good intent, may make others feel scared, upset, insulted or humiliated. Below are two guiding questions that may help determine appropriateness of costumes for school.
- Does the costume depict or perpetuate a stereotype or stigma associated with a particular race, culture, religion or gender?
- Would the costume be considered offensive to a particular race, culture, religion or gender?
Let’s create a safe and enjoyable environment for all.
