It's that time of year again to revisit our Halloween Policy.
Halloween Day Policy
Halloween will be observed at Mana Academy by allowing students the opportunity to dress up in Halloween costumes. Clothes may be worn under costumes when appropriate. Costumes are optional and not required. If a student chooses not to wear a costume, they are required to wear their 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, Geisha, Hula dancers, etc.).
Costumes may not cause a disruption or distraction to the school program, i.e. no revealing costumes (nightwear, bathing suits, 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).
Costumes must not impair a student's vision or movement.
Costumes may not show obscene materials or prohibited substances.
No masks are permitted.
If you are not sure, don't wear it!
If you have questions, contact the school front desk.
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.
