To those families celebrating Hallowe’en on Friday we wish you all the best.
Students celebrating this occasion in costume at our school must comply with the Safe School’s policy. Costume accessories including, but not limited to, toy guns, knives, axes, swords, etc. are not in compliance with York Region District School Board’s Safe Schools Policy #668.0. Should your child wear a costume to school on Friday we would ask that no replica weapons (ex. Swords, guns) be brought to school if they are part of the costume. We also ask that students not wear masks to ensure they can see clearly.
Many of our students will enjoy treats over the next few weeks. Many candies and treats, especially the small chocolate bars that the children receive during Trick or Treating contain peanuts and other nuts. These are great to enjoy at home. Given the variety of allergies we have throughout our building, we would ask all families to continue to be vigilant when selecting which snacks to bring to school. It is also important that students don’t trade snacks with each other. We do ask that no food be sent into the school from families (ex. cupcakes for a classroom to celebrate the day).
Your continued support of student safety is greatly appreciated.
