Halloween Questions

I reviewed my school’s Halloween costume policy with my class two days after their millions of  questions about our canned food drive (see post below).  Knowing that they would have a ton of questions about Halloween too, and not feeling like devoting 20 minutes to answering all those questions, I told them, “I will not be answering questions at this time.  If you have a question, please write it on a post-it note, and I will get back to you later with an answer.”  I have 28 students, and I received 24 questions.  The summary of the school policy is no violent or frightening costumes, and I told the class to ask if they were unsure if their costume would be considered violent/frightening or if the clothing with it would be school-dress-code-appropriate.  These were some of my favorite questions from my students who are clearly very conscientious.  :)

“I have a wig and glasses. Does the wig count as not seeable?”
(One of the guidelines is no masks that obscure vision)

“Are you allowed to bring a doll, a stuffed doll?”

“Can you wear overalls with your costume? And ear headband?  Or bow ties that are grey?”
(Can anyone guess this adorable, non-scary costume?)

“Can you do your hair fancy?”

“Is Cindy Lou Who scary?”
