Halloween Festivities – Friday, October 31st

Posted by admin on October 27, 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article


Overview of Halloween at Blythe Park:
  • School routines in the morning will remain the same.  Students will not wear costumes during the morning hours.  They are allowed to go home during the lunch hour to change. If students are not going home for lunch, parents may send the costume with their child in the morning so that he or she may change into it in the afternoon.
  • Weapons associated with your child’s costume are not allowed at Blythe Park.  Please reserve these accessories for your child’s fun-filled night of trick-or-treating.
  • Students may wear masks during the parade, but will be asked to remove them during the Halloween play.
  • Kindergarteners are encouraged to come back in the afternoon for Halloween festivities.  We ask that they be accompanied by a parent or caregiver during this time.
  • If students are changing into costumes at school, please refrain from sending a costume/face make-up that is overly elaborate and time-consuming to put on. If your child’s costume does contain many parts, consider having him or her come home for lunch on this day.
  • Students will have an extended lunch/recess period on Halloween. Recess will  be from 11:30-12:15 PM and lunch will be from 12:15- 12:45 PM.  Students staying at school will change into costume from 12:45-1:00 PM.  Students who go home for lunch on this day will return to school at 1:00 PM.
  • Parents are welcome to gather (weather permitting) in the amphitheater at 1:00 PM for our Halloween parade.
  • A Halloween play “Its a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”, put on by our amazing Blythe Park parents, will follow the parade.
  • Classroom parties will follow the play.  A healthy snack and fun activity will be provided to students during this time.
