  • Costumes which offend others due to their race, gender, social content, or in any other way are not allowed
  • No toy weapons or objects displaying violence
  • No masks

If ANY outfit/costume is seen as inappropriate by the administration, student will be asked to change.

*No clown costumes allowed due to safety issues and anxiety concerns.
