The Hedding Halloween Parade will be at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, October 31. Those attending the Parade may watch along  each side of the sidewalk running east to west in front of the school.  Pre-K will lead the the Parade out the East door and through the gate to walk down the sidewalk and back in the far West door of the building.  In the event of rain, wind or exceptionally cool weather, the Parade will be held inside and spectators may line up in the foyer and down the sides of the hallways to watch students parade from the K-2 hallway through the 3-4 hallway and back to their classrooms.  We ask that spectators do not wear masks or costumes that would conceal their identity.  Also, all students may participate in the parade.  They should bring their costume to school with them that day.  Students will get dressed for the parade starting at 2 p.m., but otherwise will have a normal instructional day.  Parents are asked not to visit rooms or get students to dress in costume before 2 p.m. that day, except for a.m. pre-k.  Costumes should not contain any weapons, spray on hair color, or be considered inappropriate according to our school's student handbook. Classroom teachers will send home notes concerning individual class parties.
