Guidelines for Costumes at School

Jeff Haney with Canyons School District gives us some great reminders about staying safe on Halloween.

School Guidelines:

  • no masks
  • no weapons (even if they are fake)

Trick-or-Treating Tips:

Put the phone down!
Stay well below the posted speed limit.
Pay attention to what`s happening on sidewalks and roadways. Watch for children darting across streets, especially between parked cars.
Be extra alert when pulling in and out of driveways.
Do not assume children can see you or are paying attention.
Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. They could be dropping off children.
If you are driving to a Halloween party, put that mask on after you park the car.
Make sure drivers see the children. Give them flashlights and glow sticks. Dress kids in bright, reflective clothing or use reflective tape on their costumes.
Use makeup rather than masks, so children have a clear unobstructed view of their surroundings.
Be sure children know how to cross a street —look left, right, and left again before crossing.
Instruct children to stay on sidewalks and to cross only at corners or crosswalks.
Accompany your children as they trick-or-treat.
