Dear Riverdale Heights Families,
Halloween parties will be held in children’s classrooms following our Halloween parade. As we continue to limit large gatherings indoors for elementary aged children, only 2 adult guests (the room parent and another parent helper, arranged with the room parent) will be allowed to be in classrooms from 2:00 - 3:00 to help prepare for the parade and help in facilitating the classroom party. Students should bring their costumes to school, as we will allow time for students to put their costumes on prior to the parade and classroom party. As a reminder, all snacks for the parties should be found on the Spartan Safe Snack List.
If weather permits, we will hold our Halloween parade on the soccer field where Walk-A-Thon is held each year. At approximately 2:10 our 4th - 6th grade students will form a large oval around the perimeter of the soccer field. At 2:15 our office staff will lead grades K-3 from the building around the perimeter of the soccer field, wrapping back to the building for classroom parties. Parents who would like to attend can come out to watch the parade portion of our festivities. We will also live stream the parade on our PTA Facebook page.
Please avoid parking in our pick up areas out front after the parade so that the parking lot is ready for student dismissal at 3:00.
We're looking forward to seeing you!
