Halloween Observed 2016

Hello Sunset Park Community,

The staff and leadership of Sunset Park hopes you understand our reasoning in regards to Halloween this year. Just in case you did not get the school messenger phone call, we will not be having a parade for Halloween this year. There have been many factors that led up to the decision to not hold a parade and we believe that it is in the best interest in regards to the safety of our students to handle it this way. The bright side is that students will still have a really fun day and they will also still get to Trick or Treat, if that is something your family does, on Monday, October 31st.

For school on Friday, October 28th students will be able to dress in Halloween colors, wear Halloween shirts, hats and/or color their hair. We will still have the Monster Mash where they can dance like crazy and classrooms will still be holding Halloween themed parties.(Please check with your child's teacher for times). Lunch will be like a normal school day as students won't be heading home for changing. Remember there is no school for students on Monday, October 31st.

We take the safety of our students very seriously and we feel this is the best plan to keep our students safe and secure.

Thanks again for your support,

John Hull
Principal Sunset Parky Elementary
