We will be having our annual Halloween parade on Oct. 31st. We will be starting the parade at 1:15 and will be walking through the classrooms and ending in the gym. Please feel free to come and wait for the procession in the gym. The parade usually takes about an hour from start to finish.
This year, our 6th grade will be going on a field trip to the planetarium on Halloween. This will mean the 6th grade will not be participating in the parade. They will not arrive back at school until about 2:00
Class parties on Halloween will be happening from approximately 2:15-3:30. This is, however, class dependent on individual teacher schedules. Please check teacher emails for specific times.
Lastly, please remember that costumes for Halloween should not include masks of any kind. We need to be able to identify all students. This includes during the parade. Also, please do not bring any toy weapons to school. These will be collected and held in the office until the end of the day. Please refrain from blood or gore on costumes as well.
We are always excited to have Halloween here at Alpine. We hope everyone has fun planning fun and safe costumes for the holiday. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
