Reminder, Costume Spirit Day Is Tomorrow!

Dear Grand Ridge Families:

We are delighted to announce that this year we are having a Costume Spirit Day the same day as Falloween, Wednesday October 23rd! As with all other Spirit Days, your student (and staff!) may choose whether or not to participate. In partnership with the PTSA, we are abiding by the same set of costume expectations. Please see below for a list of the guidelines. This is the only school-wide opportunity your student will have to wear a costume during the school day this year.

All costumes must:

  • Portray positive images.
  • Not be offensive or inappropriate in any way. No costumes that demean any race, religion, nationality, disability or gender allowed.
  • Not show bare midriffs or have revealing clothing.
  • Be prepped at home. No dressing or applying makeup or hairspray once students arrive at school.
  • Allow students to sit, walk, breathe, see and hear. No masks.
  • Not include pretend weapons (pistols, knives, swords, handcuffs, etc.). Leave them at home.
  • Not cause a disruption or be unsafe.

Students wearing costumes that do not conform to the costume guidelines will not be allowed to wear them at school.
