We request that costumes are tasteful and do not restrict a child's movement. No masks or play weapons of any sort, please! On this day, faculty will be present at the Elementary and Primary entrances for morning drop off as usual or feel free to park your car and walk your child into the building. (We ask you park in either the lower lot or at the church lot adjacent to ours.
