Halloween will be observed at Mana Academy on Friday, November 01, 2019. All scholars are required to wear regular school uniform on Thursday, October 31st. As a reminder, please observe the school policy on Halloween costumes and activities outlined below.
Halloween School Policy
Halloween will be observed at the school by allowing students the opportunity to dress up in a costume. If a student chooses not to wear a costume, the student is not required to wear the regular school uniform. The regular academic school day schedule will be observed with an in-class party held at the end of the school day.
Students must adhere to the following guidelines when wearing Halloween costumes to school:
Costumes may not be demeaning to any ethnic group, race, religion, nationality, disabilities, gender or individual (staff or student) at the school. (i.e. dressing up as a Native American, a Japanese geisha, Hawaiian hula dancers, etc.)
Costumes should not obstruct students from participating in regular academic learning (i.e. elaborate costumes that make it difficult for students to participate in daily classroom activities, sit at their desk, attend class, etc.)
No weapons, toy weapons, or props replicating weapons are to be brought to school.
No props or equipment that are unsafe.
No costumes are allowed that would completely hide the identity of the student (i.e.gorilla suit, "Scream" character)
No costumes that are revealing
Costumes must not impair a student's vision or movement.
Costumes may not show obscene materials or prohibited substances.
No masks are permitted.
Shoes must be worn.
If you are not sure, don't wear it! If you have questions, contact the school front desk or your student's teacher.
Students who do not adhere to these guidelines will be asked to remove the part of the costume which is not in compliance. If this is not possible, a parent will be called to pick the child up from school or to bring something appropriate to the school and/or to resolve the problem.
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
