Halloween Costume Guidelines

Post date: Oct 19, 2017 9:5:54 PM

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.
