This is a reminder that St. Bernadette School will allow students to dress up for Halloween. Student who wish not to dress up may come in Halloween colours or they may wear their uniform.
If your child is coming in costume we would like to remind you of the following:
1. Children are not to wear costumes that would be deemed inappropriate. We ask that costumes refrain from portraying violent characters and/or images, and promoting characters and/or imagery that depicts parts of society that causes harm to others.
2. All weapons, no matter how fake or harmless they are (foam, cardboard, etc.), must be kept at home. We have had great success in the past with families complying with this request.
3. When entering onto school property and again when entering into the school, for identity and safety purposes, we ask that masks and hoods are removed. They can wear their masks during the Halloween Parade.
Please remind your child that wearing a costume is a privilege and the principal reserves the right to ask any student to remove their costume for any reason.
We will have our annual Costume Parade for the students at 1:00pm on Halloween. Parents are more than welcome to come and watch the students parade from classroom to classroom.
Our RCMP Liaison officer has dropped off two posters on how to be safe on Halloween. One is posted inside the school near the library and the other on the window of the door as you enter the school by the gym. If you are looking for tips on how to keep your child safe this Halloween, please read over the poster.
