Just a few helpful reminders about Halloween at BPS. We acknowledge that not everyone celebrates Halloween and as such, costumes are NOT a requirement and classrooms will NOT be engaging in parties. Students are welcome to wear their costumes if they would like, but orange and black, or regular clothing is also fine. School and classes will continue as normal – we know that Halloween parties will be happening in homes across the neighbourhood on Thursday night. In the past there has been a dance the day before Halloween but we are having a dance run by some of our Intermediates in a few weeks time.
If your children are wearing costumes on Thursday, please do not send any replica weapons that may accompany the costume and please no masks that cover the entire face and/or head. Please do not send food with students to share with their classes as due to allergies and other food restrictions, we cannot share food. In the days following Halloween, screen your kids’ snacks to make sure that nut products and candy containing nuts do not come to school.
Happy Trick or Treating! Please be safe and HAVE FUN!
