Spirit Day (Costume Day) - October 28th
Thursday, October 28th will be our Spirit Day for the month. Hats are okay on these days, but should be related to the theme and removed during class if the teacher makes the request. Costumes should be in good taste (i.e. not revealing or too gory) and should be related to the theme of the day. No toy or look alike weapons. Costumes should not endanger the safety of others. Costumes should not disrupt instruction. Facemasks are NOT permitted. Face paint, make-up or hairspray should be applied at home. In light of the social environment, no clown costumes will be allowed.
CONTACTING A TEACHER
If you would like to contact a teacher, the best and timeliest way is through email. Most questions or concerns can be taken care of this way. If you still feel that you need to meet, please arrange an appointment time with the teacher. This way they can make sure they have adequate time to spend with you. On the day of your visit, please make sure to sign in the front office and get a visitors badge.†
