Superintendent Letter: Planning for a Safe and Inclusive Halloween

October 23, 2020 2:26 PM

Dear families,

Halloween is just around the corner and I know that our school communities are looking forward to celebrating this holiday in creative ways. To ensure that all members in our school communities are able to enjoy this holiday, I wanted to reach out with a gentle reminder to please be thoughtful in the selection of costume being worn to school. 

While our school district does not have an official policy on Halloween costumes, we must always be guided by the expectations set out in school codes of conduct and our district Safe, Caring and Healthy Schools policy. As such, we must always ensure our learning environments remain safe, welcoming, inclusive, and affirming for all students, families, and staff. (more…)
