We are planning for our annual Halloween Parade at Northwood to be held
on October 30th at 2:30 p.m. Many teachers will be distributing special treats
at the end of the day. As the special day draws near, we would like to review
several requests from staff:
• No toy guns, knives or other weapons are to be brought to school –
even if they are part of your child’s costume. Please save them for
trick or treat activities at home. No masks are to be worn at school, as
they are a potential safety hazard.
• Students are not to wear their costumes or makeup, special hair
sprays, etc. to school. All costumes must be brought to school in a
• Students are encouraged to bring costumes that can be put on in the
room without requiring the use of our very limited bathroom facilities.
Thank you for your support in this matter. We hope that you will be able to
join us for the parade at 2:30 p.m. Watch for more information on our
website within the next few weeks. Morning kindergarteners will celebrate
starting at 10:45.
