Weather-permitting, the parade will proceed out of the building at 2:00 p.m., down the sidewalk toward Cherry Creek and move inside Cherry Creek for the residents to view the students in their costumes. Parents may line the sidewalk to view the parade, but should not walk to Cherry Creek as there will not be adequate room inside for everyone. After the parade, volunteers who signed up to help in the classrooms may reenter the building to assist with the party.
In the case of rain, the parade will be held inside beginning at 2:15 p.m. Visitors who are watching the parade should sign in at the front table and go to the gym. Students will parade around the perimeter of the gym, stopping briefly for pictures. Family members who are not signed up to volunteer in the classroom may exit the building after the parade is concluded.
Parent volunteers may proceed to classrooms at 1:30 in order to set up for the party.
Snacks will be arranged by the room parent(s). Due to the possibility of food allergies, please do not send in additional food treats other than what has been arranged by the room parent(s).
Please send costumes which students are able to change into independently (without adult assistance) prior to the parade.
The following costume items are NOT permitted: real or fake spears, axes, guns, swords, knives, etc.; modern day horror character outfits; masks of ANY kind (including full body stockings that cover the face); face paint that entirely covers the face (whiskers/freckles are OK).
Thank you for your cooperation in making our Halloween celebration a fun, positive time for all Woodland students!!
October 24: Early Release (1:30 p.m.) PLEASE NOTE: NO YMCA LATCHKEY AVAILABLE
We encourage parents who are able to utilize district busing to take advantage of this service, as it the safest and most convenient way for children to get home from school. However, if you do pick your child up from school at dismissal please follow the procedures outlined below:
Park your car, grab your I.D. and come into the gym through the back gym door (door opens at 3:25 p.m.)
Sign your child out at the desk inside the gym door; you may be asked to show your I.D. if the staff member does not recognize you.
Through the collaboration of the school, parents, and the community, every student will have the opportunity to engage in real and relevant learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment in order to become life-long learners.
