Halloween Parade- Location Change

Due to forecasted weather, we will now hold the Halloween Parade inside in the gymnasium. Parents that attend the parade should park out back and enter through the back door on the 1st/2nd Grade Hallway. Doors will open for parents attending the Halloween Parade at 2:15 PM and the Parade will begin at 2:30 PM.
After the parade, students will return to their classrooms to pick up their belongings. If you signed the paper to pick up your child after the parade, they will be dismissed by classroom to the gym to meet you. We ask that all parents remain seated in the gym until your child’s classroom is announced to come to the gym floor to pick them up.
