Halloween Costumes

When Halloween  is on a school day, students may come in costumes provided that they respect the following guidelines:

"MPH students may come in costume, provided that the costume is in good taste (i.e., suitable for viewing by children as young as four). No weapons, real or simulated, are permitted as part of a costume, nor are other items that would not be permitted in school ordinarily (for example, liquor bottles). The dress code is eased for the day for students genuinely in costume. Scary, provocative or gory costumes are not allowed. Costumes perpetuating racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes are not allowed". (Parent Student Handbook - Halloween Costumes, p 21)
