Halloween Parade and Alternate Activity Info

St. John’s Lane Elementary School will hold its annual Halloween celebration on Tuesday, October 31st. Please read the following information carefully so that you are fully informed about the day. This year the parade will again be in the morning. Students may come to school dressed in their costume (over their clothes) and the parade will take place about 9:15 am. After the parade, each grade level team will provide seasonal activities and games in the classroom.
Our families are invited to join us outside for the parade that begins at 9:15AM, weather permitting. Please gather around the black top area behind the school and the car loop area. In order to maintain a safe and secure environment during the festivities, we will be unable to accommodate visitors within the building before or after the parade. Assigned volunteers will be provided with a special pass for the day. We will not be permitting adults without the special pass to enter the building after the parade. We know we can count on you, to be understanding about this safety procedure, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.
COSTUMES: We ask that parents help children to choose appropriate costumes. Costumes may not include toy weapons, masks or make-up for this school event. Parents or other adults joining the festivities as a volunteer or spectator must follow these same guidelines if they choose to dress in costume.
ALTERNATE ACTIVITY: If you do not want your child to participate in the Halloween Parade, please complete the form below. For children who do not participate in the Halloween parade, an alternate activity will be provided during the parade.
PARKING: As you know, parking is extremely limited at SJLES. If possible, please consider walking to school that day or carpooling. Of course, there is no parking in front of the red Fire Lane at any time. Please be courteous to our neighbors and do not park on private lawns, especially on Southview Drive.
INCLEMENT WEATHER: In the case of inclement weather on October 31st, the parade will be cancelled and the seasonal activities will continue as planned in the classroom. Students will still be able to wear their costumes to school. Should the parade be canceled, we will make every effort to notify you by 8:00am that day through the enews alert system.
