BPN 7 - Halloween Carnival

 

We are so excited to be hosting our annual Halloween Carnival on Friday, October 29th for our Laurence students. This year, we will not be having an early dismissal, and we will be running carpool at 3:00 p.m. There will be no after school care or enrichment programs that afternoon.  

If your child(ren) will be leaving with another family, please move them to the corresponding carpool via SchoolPass ASAP so we can ensure an efficient carpool and the safety of all students.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade students only may have one (fully vaccinated) parent join them at the carnival from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.! If you are unable to attend, please contact your child’s teacher so they can assign a buddy for them to attend with.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS

  • Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose at all times 
  • A costume mask does NOT substitute as a face covering
  • The L.A. County Department of Public Health advises against wearing a Halloween costume mask over a face covering, as it may cause difficulty breathing.
  • The carnival is entirely outdoors.
  • Carnival times are staggered to avoid overcrowding in any one area.  
  • The 6th Grade Haunted House attraction will have scheduled times and students will be let in one by one (K and 1st grade parents may walk through the Haunted House with their child).  Additionally, it will be constructed to allow for proper ventilation.

COSTUMES
Students should wear their costumes to school in the morning, with shoes appropriate for P.E.  Costumes should be appropriate for young children -- not too frightening or violent, and please no fake blood. In addition, costumes should not be culturally, politically, or racially insensitive. Toy weapons of any type are not allowed on campus.

LUNCH
Students will enjoy lunch prior to the carnival. If you did not already order pizza from Freshlunches, please remember to provide lunch for your child. Please also be sure to send a snack with your child(ren).

BUS
There will be afternoon bus service, as regularly scheduled, departing at 2:55 p.m. Please check your SchoolPass account and ensure that your child is scheduled accordingly.  Those who do not ride the bus home will need to be picked up from school at 3:00 p.m..
