  • Costumes should not discriminate or demean any group regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or special needs.

 

  • Costumes should be positive and avoid anything that reflects violence or violent acts.  Costume selection should be tasteful and in keeping with a positive school climate.

 

  • Costumes should not provide a distraction to the school program.  i.e., no revealing costumes such as bathing suits and sleepwear.

 

  • Weapons and facsimile weapons of any type are not allowed.

 

  • Costumes must not impair a student’s vision or movement.

 

  • Face masks or hoods that cover your face are not permitted.
