Parents are invited to the Pierrepont Halloween Parade on Thursday, October 31, 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 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. 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 lunch time 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 must complete the attached form and return it to their child’s homeroom teacher by Monday, October 21. Parents will be responsible for picking up their children in grades 6-8 at 11:12 A.M. and returning them to school by 11:54 A.M. Parents of children in grades 4 and 5 will be responsible for picking up their children at 12:00 P.M. and returning them to school at 12:45 P.M.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, October 31 — HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
