Overview of Halloween at Blythe Park:

  • Morning – School routines in the morning will remain the same. With the exception of AM Early Learners and Kindergartners, students will NOT wear costumes during the morning hours. They are allowed to go home during the lunch hour to change. If students are not going home for lunch, parents may send the costume with their child in the morning so that he or she may change into it in the afternoon.
  • Costume Guidelines – Weapons associated with your child’s costume are not allowed at Blythe Park. Please reserve these accessories for your child’s fun-filled night of trick-or-treating. Students may wear masks during the parade, but will be asked to remove them during the Halloween play.
  • AM Early Learners and Kindergarten – AM Early Learners and Kindergarteners are encouraged to come back in the afternoon for Halloween festivities. **They must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver during this time.

Both AM and PM Early Learners will run it’s normal schedule.
