Halloween Guidelines 2021
Like last year, students will be allowed to come to school on Friday, October 29 in costume. Students will need to come in costumes that are functional since they will be wearing them all day. Unfortunately, there will not be a schoolwide parade again this year. However, we will have classroom parties with two parent volunteers that are vaccinated.As parents begin thinking about children's Halloween costumes, we'd like to share a few reminders:
- Costumes must be comfortable enough to be worn in school throughout the day, including sitting in class, attending P.E., using the bathroom, eating lunch, etc. Please avoid blow-up costumes or others that restrict movement.
- Please do not send children to school with replica weapons.
- Staff will not be able to help children with makeup or accessories, so please make sure children are self-sufficient with their costumes.
- Face masks must be worn during the day as usual, so please make sure your child can wear a mask under or as part of his or her costume. Masks must adhere to COVID safety guidelines (i.e., a costume face covering does not count as an acceptable face mask for the day).
SHIELD TestingVoluntary SHIELD Illinois testing for COVID-19 resumes the week of Oct. 6.For those students participating, Meadowbrook students in grades 1-5 will be tested each Tuesday morning, and kindergarten students will be tested on Thursday mornings between 11:00-11:45.Students will test in our upper gym, where there is ample room to spread out and test larger numbers of students at one time.Please remember that students cannot eat or drink for one hour prior to testing so breakfast on Tuesdays should ideally conclude by 7:45 a.m. Please refer to SHIELD information and FAQ or contact Mr. Thome with any questions (email@example.com).
