Note from Mr. Sturgeon:  All treats that are brought to school, including Halloween treats, need to be store bought and prepackaged.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and keeping our children safe from food allergies.


Attention Parents:  Halloween information!  The students will be in class learning until 1:45 p.m.  Parents can start signing in at 1:30 p.m., but will not be able to go to the classroom until 1:45 p.m.  Parties will start at 2:00 p.m.  Also, we are asking that all parents leave the school building at 2:30 p.m. so we can line the students up for the parade.  The parade will begin at 2:40 p.m.  The parade will go down Main Street to the Post Office turn around and come back to the Elementary School.  The parade will be cancelled if it is raining or the temperature is below 45 degrees.


In accordance with school policies, we will follow the guideline of NO replica of weapons: firearms, knives, swords, chains, clubs, pitchforks, or anything that could be used as a weapon.  No roller blades will be allowed.  No pets of any kind will be allowed.


For the safety of all the children:  Following the parade, all students Kindergarten through 4th will reenter the building prior to any parents coming inside.  Once the students are safely in their classrooms, we will open the front door and parents may go to their child’s classroom and sign them out.
