Halloween Dress Up
Tuesday, October 31st, 2017
Halloween is a fun and festive day which is celebrated by the STMC community by allowing the students to dress up in costume. Typically, the time around Halloween is incident free and very respectful.
From time to time, a few students “in character” push the bounds of what is socially acceptable, or what is appropriate behavior in school sometimes at the expense of others.
With that in mind, we would like your assistance in reinforcing these guidelines with our students for their safety and school climate reasons:
- Students in costume should be easily recognizable and/or identify themselves to any staff member when queried.
- Replica weapons ( guns, knives etc.) are inappropriate and should not be included as part of a student’s costume.
- Students “in character” are to conduct themselves appropriately. Behavior which intimidate, harass, or humiliate members of the community or other behaviors which are inappropriate at the expense of others, do not contribute to a fun and safe environment.
