Important Reminder for Halloween: The ONLY mask your child can wear is their usual COVID face covering. This was clearly communicated by the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario on Monday, October 19. Please know that your child will be required to wear their mask so makeup on your child’s face will not be necessary.
All students are invited to dress up in costumes for Halloween on Friday, October 30th at school. While we want students to have fun, please use the following guidelines when choosing an appropriate costume for school. If you child is not comfortable wearing a costume, they are welcome to wear black and orange for the day to join in the festive nature of Halloween.
If possible, send you child to school in a spare/used/older costume in the event it becomes damaged. You may also send a change of clothes for your child for the afternoon as many children are not comfortable being in a costume all day long.
Your child will be attending class, participating in physical education, going outside for recess breaks, and eating their snacks/lunch in their costume – they need to be able to move comfortably.
- All costumes should be school aged appropriate
- Do not send any props (e.g., pitch forks, weapons, brooms, wands, etc.)
- No scary or gory costumes will be allowed
If costumes are inappropriate, students will be asked to change.

Unfortunately, there will be NO TREAT sharing of any kind. This includes candy, prepacked treats, etc. We know that times are challenging for students right now. However, thanks to the efforts we have all made to this point, school continues to be a positive and safe space for all members of our community. Let’s continue to do the right thing even when it isn’t the popular or preferred thing.
Your understanding and cooperation is genuinely appreciated!
