Halloween at Callison

Halloween is coming.  We are going to be breaking with recent tradition at Callison and allowing students to wear costumes to school on Halloween Day.  (6th grade will be doing Crazy Hair Day instead of costumes.)  Costumes must be safe, comfortable and need to comply with the school wide dress code. Costumes must be comfortable and safe, allowing students to move about and play freely without interfering with vision. Costumes should not be offensive or overly frightening. There should be no blood, weapons or implied violence.  Students cannot wear masks or makeup that covers their faces.  Students must be able to participate in PE, and, something else to think about, students need to be able to use the bathroom without assistance.


As long as it is not raining, we will be having a Halloween parade starting at 9:00 Monday morning.  Our students in K-3 will take a lap around our blacktop first, followed by our upper grade students.  Parents who want to be on hand for the parade, please keep in mind that the front row is going to be reserved for our students who are not currently walking.  You are welcome to stand behind these students, or to be on the outside of the parade route.  PM Kindergarten students will have their own parade Monday afternoon.




Students are expected to dress neatly and appropriately for all school activities. As outlined in District Policy 5470 (appendix F) students are not allowed to wear anything that advertises alcohol, tobacco, or drugs.  Make-up, short shorts, halters, backless and tube tops are not allowed.  Spaghetti straps or mesh shirts must be worn only with a t-shirt underneath.  Pants may not be worn low off the hips. (sagging)  Shirts must cover the waistline: no skin showing.  Undergarments must not be visible.  Closed-toe shoes with low heels must be worn at all times.  Sandals without backs, flip-flops and Heelys are not safe for elementary school activities and should not be worn to school.  Hats and sweatshirt hoods may be worn outside only.  Hats are NOT allowed in classrooms, the office, cafeteria or library.  Brims must be worn straightforward and should shade the face for UV protection.  Hoods, bandanas, hair nets, scarves, and headbands are not to be worn on campus except for religious purposes.  Hats worn improperly or any headwear that does not conform to these standards will be confiscated.  Stocking caps will only be allowed during severe winter temperatures.
