Parents are invited to the Pierrepont Halloween Parade on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. The viewing area for spectators will be along the parade route and outside the fence surrounding the lower field. Please do not enter the lower field on Lincoln and Van Ness avenues. We need the field for the children’s program. In the event of rain, the parade will be canceled.
Students in grades four and five will parade out the front entrance of the school, down Pierrepont Avenue to Lincoln Avenue, down Lincoln Avenue to East Van Ness Avenue and onto the lower field. Students in grade six will enter the lower field directly from the building to participate in the parade. After the program on the lower field, children will return by way of East Van Ness Avenue to Wilson Avenue, through the playground onto Pierrepont Avenue and back into the building.
In the interest of safety, please be sure to design your child’s costume so that it will allow him or her to move safely through the building and outside along the parade route. We ask that children not wear masks or hats that obscure their vision. Toy guns, swords and sharp or pointed objects are not to be brought to school.
Students may go home at lunchtime to dress or bring their costumes with them to school and change at lunch time. Parents who wish to have their children released at lunch time without a parent coming into the office to sign them out must complete the attached form and return it to their child’s homeroom teacher by Monday, October 22nd. Parents will be responsible for picking up their children in grades 5-6 at 11:28 A.M. and returning them to school by 12:10 P.M. Parents of children in grade 4 will be responsible for picking up their children at 12:12 P.M. and returning them to school by 12:54 P.M.
Please note that the parade will begin promptly at 1:00 P.M., it is important that the children going home for lunch return in a timely manner in order to participate in the parade. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, October 31st — HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
