Halloween Costume Guidelines

posted Oct 19, 2017, 2:05 PM by Kelli Knowles

Kootenai Elementary students will be permitted to wear costumes to school on October 31st. Please keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • Students may wear Halloween costumes but must be recognizable, i.e. no masks or facial coverings.

  • Face painting is allowed if the student is recognizable and the painting applies to the costume being worn, i.e. whiskers for a cat, nose for a clown.

  • No toy (or real) weapons are allowed at school.

  • Any student wearing a costume must fully prepare before arriving to school. Spray cans, hair coloring, spray string, face painting, etc. will NOT be allowed at school.

  • Parents are encouraged to supervise their child’s costume choice – keeping in mind that ultimately, Kootenai Elementary serves as a safe place for learning every day.

  • If students do wear inappropriate costumes, the administration reserves the right to ask them to change.

  • To ensure the best learning environment for all students, we ask that students do not bring candy to school.  This is especially important to remember following Halloween.
