Halloween at HMS

Posted on 10/10/2019


Dear Parents/Guardians & Students:

HMS will be sponsoring two events at the end of October in which students may attend in costume.  On Friday, October 25th, HMS will host a Halloween Dance/Open Gym from 7:00 - 9:00 pm, and then on Halloween itself, Thursday, October 31st, 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 either of these occasions, we ask that you keep the following in mind: 

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