    CHANGES:

    This revision replaces Bulletin BUL-5298.0 of the same title dated October 18, 2010,

    issued by the Office of the Superintendent. The content has been updated to reflect

    current contact information and organizational structure.

    GUIDELINES: This Bulletin outlines District Policy regarding Halloween activities to allow

    students to participate in enjoyable, positive, and controlled activities, while

    maintaining student safety.

    The following guidelines shall apply:

    Students may wear costumes to school according to guidelines established by the school.

    One of the most important mandates is that costumes shall not be demeaning to any person or group based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender

    identity (boys as girls and vice versa), nationality, race, religion, sex, sexual

    orientation or to any individual staff or student at the school.

    Costumes may not cause a significant disruption or distraction to the school program such as revealing costumes (e.g., low cut, French maids, nightwear,

    and bathing suits).

    No costume can be worn that is unsafe or that may create a safety hazard.

    No weapons or replica weapons are to be brought to school.

    No masks are allowed that completely hide the identity of the student; how-ever, masks may be worn during a parade or other specific activity, provided

    that safety is not hindered, as determined by the site administrator.
