Are your child(ren) school allowing them to dress up for Halloween? If so, what's the theme?

We have to do Aesop's Fables. Although I already bought a winter princess outfit last week. Now I have to find a book that matches the outfit so she can wear it.

  • To avoid the Halloween issue, my younger children's school decided to have a no contact day. But they do allow and almost insist that the kids dress up for Purim in late Feb/early March (private Jewish school.)

    My oldest son has fall break next week, so no Halloween at his high school either.

  • Kids don't come in their costumes but can bring them and change into them during the second half of the day. There are no limits/parameters on costumes. During the day on Halloween, they have outside time with festive things like an egg toss, three-legged race, sack race, bobbing for apples. Then they change into costumes (optional.) The middle school kids host a haunted house for the younger kids (it's a private ungraded school for ages 5-14, fewer than 40 kids total) and they all have cider donuts and apple cider.

    Most of the kids walk in a local parade in the village that starts about an hour or so after school gets out, so that's where we go from school. My younger kids walk, too. The parade ends at the cultural/arts center and there's a large bonfire, cider & donuts (again, lol) and some gift certificates for costumes chosen as winners in various categories during the parade.

    Some people also go trick-or-treating after.

  • We have a costume parade on Halloween and a fall festival party in the classroom. They are elementary and allowed to wear anything but no weapons allowed and no scary masks so as not to scare the younger children.

  • We don't have a theme. Our school always has a costume parade on Halloween at 2:00, and then at 2:20, each class has their own party in their classrooms.
