Celebrating Halloween at school

Help USN make Halloween merry, not scary. Students should follow the USN dress code and leave frightening costumes and distracting props at home.
By Juanita I.C. Traughber, Communications Director

Students, faculty, and staff may wear costumes crafted in good taste to school on Friday, October 29. Halloween costumes should adhere to the USN dress code, which states, “Attire that is revealing, patently offensive, distracting or otherwise counterproductive to the learning process is not acceptable.” Everyone also must continue to abide by the school's COVID-19 mitigation strategies by wearing a face covering or mask over the nose and mouth. Students and families with questions about appropriate selections should contact their Division heads.
  • Shoes are required.
  • Toy weapons should not be brought to class.
  • Please be mindful USN is a K-12 school. Costumes should not be gory or anything that might scare a young child.
  • We will have a regular day of classes, so make sure costumes do not limit students' ability to participate normally.
  • Bring appropriate clothes for recess, physical education, or sports if your costume will prohibit normal participation.
USN strongly recommends families take the CDC's activities, gatherings & holidays guidance to heart while celebrating away from school.
    • The Health Team dressed in social distancing and caution tape for Halloween 2020.
