It has been the policy of Sacred Heart School to have Halloween celebrations in the individual classrooms. These celebrations include costumes, treats, stories, games, and parades. While it is recognized that Halloween is not a Christian holiday, it is very much a children’s day in the United States.
While we will continue to celebrate the day at the discretion of the individual teachers, some limitations are to be observed:
• Costumes must be in good taste, modest, and worn with the knowledge that this is a Catholic school.
• Costumes may not be bloody or gory.
• Make-up must be minimal.
• The time consumed with the celebration must be reasonable.
