Halloween Guidelines, Start of Q2

It’s almost Halloween, so we thought we’d send our Skylert out a bit early this week so that we could remind everyone of costume guidelines (below) before you got dressed for the day. Also, remember that Quarter 2 starts tomorrow!

Halloween Dress Guidelines

Halloween is a great chance to see the personality and creativity of our students. We want the day to be fun, and we also want to be able to have a productive day in class. With that in mind, what follows is a list of guidelines to help us do both:

  • The School Dress Code and the Student Code of Conduct still apply
  • Students should come to school already dressed with any makeup already applied
  • Students should avoid costumes that degrade any other group of people
  • We must be able to easily see who you are
    • Avoid masks worn on the face, except for use as personal protective equipment
    • Makeup or other costume additions must still allow us to identify you
  • We must be able to move in the halls and function in class, including avoiding disruptions to teachers and other students
  • Costumes must be safe, and make others feel safe
    • No weapons or facsimiles of weapons
  • Footwear must be worn all day

Above all, if you’re aren’t sure you should wear it, just don’t. We can’t wait to see what you come up with, and be sure to check our social media channels for pics of our costume contest.


Plans are already in the works for our 9th grade Industry Tour coming in April. The Industry Tour is an opportunity for our 9th graders to visit one of our various locations to tour the business, listen to a presentation, and learn more about that industry. 9th graders will earn the privilege of attending the Industry Tour by getting final grades of all Honors (H) and / or Satisfactory (S) in Citizenship for 2nd and 3rd quarter. 9th graders that get any Needs Improvement (N) and / or Unsatisfactory (U) for a final grade for 2nd and / or 3rd quarter will not be eligible to attend the Industry Tour. So we encourage all our students to be kind, be respectful, stay on task and work hard in class so they earn the privilege to attend the Industry Tour.
