This year with school being socially distanced and the pandemic causing all sorts of disruption, for the first time all students are allowed to wear their Halloween costumes to school. With everything being so different schools are making the best of it and allowing students to show off their costumes on campus all over our district. Seeing all of the students with their costumes and the excitement to show off has really boosted student and staff morale. I even decided to join in on the fun and wear my Halloween attire.
