A chill is in the air, the pumpkins are in the patch, Halloween is approaching and we are getting excited about our upcoming festivities. We will celebrate on Thursday, October 31, 2019. Please remember, when purchasing this year’s costume, our school promotes kindness. Children as young as five years old attend our school and we do not want anyone to be frightened! Weapons will not be allowed on school grounds and we discourage any blood and gore. All students are to bring their costumes to school in a bag labeled with your child’s name. Because students are changing at school and bathroom space is limited, please have your child wear any parts of his/her costume that are clothes (IE tights, black pants, etc). Please DO NOT SEND ANY FOOD OR CANDY!

The Vernon Hills Police Department has allowed parents to park on the East side of Aspen during the Halloween festivities. Please note that your car must be moved in time for dismissal. Please do NOT block the bus lanes in the back of the school or the pick up line in the front of school. Please do NOT SEND ANY FOOD or CANDY!
Please remember, that the remainder of the day is a regular school day. We will maintain an academic atmosphere where LEARNING will be the focus. If you do not want your child to participate in Halloween festivities, please contact your child’s teacher for alternate activities.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Halloween!
