Hallowe’en at OLP!

  • We will celebrate Halloween at OLP today! Students will need to wear their regular cloth masks to school and may not wear costume masks either as a substitute or in addition to their cloth masks.
  • Students will be able to wear costumes that are:
    • easy to move in as they will wear their costumes all day including outside for recess.
    • have no weapons or toy weapons
    • not overly scary or gory (appropriate for all students)
    • respectful of all cultural heritages
  • When choosing a Halloween costume with your child, you may find it helpful to consider and discuss the following questions:
    • Is my costume making fun of or is it offensive towards a group of people, their culture or religion?
    • Does my costume reinforce jokes and stereotypes about certain groups, cultures, or religions?
    • Am I altering my skin colour, facial, or body features to make them darker or like a particular race, ethnicity, or cultural group?
    • Am I dressing up as a culture or borrowing from a religtion that is not my own or is not part of my background?
    • Do I understand and respect the history or tradition of the culture that I am borrowing my costume from?
