Halloween at HMS

Posted on 10/11/2021


Dear Parents/Guardians & Students:

The first school-wide "spirit" day at HMS will be at the end of the month on Friday, October 29th in which students are welcome to attend school in costume for a school-spirit day of Halloween fun.  

While many students enjoy wearing costumes to school, not all do, and that’s fine.  In lieu of a costume, many students prefer to simply wear a funny hat or Halloween-themed t-shirt, perhaps some facepaint, or even just orange/black colors.  There are many ways students can participate comfortably in the spirit of the day without having to wear a costume if they do not wish to.

If your son or daughter intends on dressing in costume for school on the 29th, we ask that you keep the following in mind: 

Costumes should be school-appropriate and comfortable to wear for the day.  
No excessive gore, violence or sexual innuendo should be a part of the costume.
No fake weapons.  These will be confiscated.
No full-face masks.  Students’ faces must be visible.  Make-up and hats are all fine, but no masks other than the mouth/nose covering cloth masks.

Finally, please note that Hillsborough Township institutes a 10:00 p.m. curfew for individuals under the age of 18 starting October 28th - 31st.   

With all this in mind, looking forward to a safe and fun Halloween for everyone.

Frightfully yours,

Joseph Trybulski, Ed.D.
