Our Halloween parade will be on Friday, October 29th at 2:30 pm. This year, in order to maintain social distancing guidelines and provide enough room for everyone to spread out with adequate space, the students will march around the field in the back of the school. Grades will be spread out around the field. If the weather does not cooperate, we will have another plan. Anyone who will be on school property will be expected to wear a mask. This is to maintain the safety of all our Toll Gators. Please send your child to school in their costume. They can bring in any accessories to their costume in a bag. It is important to remember students should be able to: walk, participate in Wellness and recess in their costume, dress themselves and not need to use the restroom to change. Inflatable costumes can be worn and inflated prior to the parade. Weapons, blood or r-rated movie costumes are not allowed. Face masks covering the nose and mouth are required (no Halloween masks, please). Classroom celebrations will be directly after students return from the parade at 3 pm. Food or goodie bags with food will NOT be permitted at the celebrations. Remember the importance of setting a positive tone for your child. We all want to continue to celebrate these wonderful holidays in a fun and safe manner. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you. Happy Halloween!
All school supplies will continue to be provided by the school. Parents will not need to purchase any school supplies for their child(ren).
