Halloween Guidelines
Lyon and Pleasant Ridge Halloween activities will be held on Friday, October 28th, with class participating in classroom parties during the day. Monday, October 31st will be a typical school schedule.

Students will be permitted to bring Halloween costumes on Friday, October 28th, and change into them when directed by their teachers (typically after lunch/recess).  Information about classroom celebrations and activities will be forthcoming from your child’s teacher.
In order to help your students enjoy this holiday in a safe manner, please observe the following guidelines for our celebration at school.  Remember that costumes should be simple and fun in nature so they can be put on without adult assistance.
With the growing clown posturing and common concern over national stories involving clowns, I am asking parents to please refrain from clown costumes. During this Halloween season to ensure student safety and sensitivity, I encourage you to please assist in ensuring your child refrain from these costumes this season.
  • Students are not to wear costumes or face makeup to school
  • Aerosol spray cans (hair spray, hair color, etc.) are not permitted in school
  • No weapons (real or look alike) this includes swords, guns, knives, lasers, etc.
  • No skateboards, scooters, or rollerblades, etc.
  • Costumes should avoid portraying violent characters such as Freddie Kruger, “Jason”, ax-murderers, etc.
  • No Masks

Please consider your child’s selection of Halloween costumes. A “Hero” theme (fireman or police person, etc.) would be a positive costume choice. Costumes based on fictional characters in children’s literature (Harry Potter, Pippi Longstocking, etc.) or on historical figures (George Washington, Statute of Liberty, etc.) would also help to shift the focus away from violence.
FOOD: Please remember students may not bring in food to share with the class. The only treats to be distributed will organized by the room parents and be brought in by the parent volunteers.
