RME Halloween Guidelines

Halloween is just around the corner. Please reference the district guidelines below:

These guidelines apply to all students, regardless of the learning model they are enrolled in. Costumes may only be worn on Monday, October 31, 2022, or at designated school sanctioned after school events.  

  1. Costumes that would otherwise violate the Student Dress Code (Superintendent Policy 5060) will only be allowed if approved by an administrator prior to wearing to school.  For safety reasons, masks or makeup should not cover the student’s face in a manner that makes the student unrecognizable.  Masks or makeup that conceal a student's identity may be worn only during designated times such as during a costume contest.  

  2. The following are considered not appropriate for school or school events:

  3. Costumes that are overly graphic, promote violence or otherwise might logically be assumed to be offensive to others 

  4. Costumes that are sexually suggestive and would otherwise violate the school’s dress code

  5. Costumes with sound effects, lights or other components which would disrupt the classroom learning environment

  6. Costumes that could be considered insensitive to various races, cultures and religions

  7. Toy or facsimile weapons of any kind (guns, knives, swords, bats, etc.) are not allowed

  8. Costumes or dress of any kind that may be potentially disruptive to the educational or school environment

In alignment with Superintendent Policy 5060, school administrators may ask students or participants  to change into school appropriate attire and/or remove masks, makeup, or costumes.

Keep in mind,  district and school leadership evaluate the guidelines each year and make adjustments as needed to ensure a safe celebration for the entire school community. Students who violate or are suspected to be in violation of this policy will be referred to school administration.  If costumes become a distraction to a child's ability to learn during the day, they may also be asked to remove the costume.
