Halloween Costume Dress Code Rules

Halloween is coming up on Thursday, October 31.  Students may wear a costume to school, but the following rules apply:

  • Costumes must conform to the Peterson Middle School Dress Code.  Questions about the Dress Code?  You'll find it in your Student Handbook (page 7/8).
  • Costumes may not be demeaning to any ethnic group, race, religion, nationality, disability, gender, or individual (staff or student) at the school.
  • Costumes may not cause a disruption or distraction to the school program, i.e. no revealing costumes.
  • No weapons, toy weapons, or props replicating weapons are to be brought to school. 
  • No costumes are allowed that would completely hide the identity of the student, i.e. gorilla suit, "Scream" character.
  • Costumes must not impair a student's vision or movement.
  • Costumes may not show obscene materials or prohibited substances.
  • No masks are permitted.
  • No clown costumes.
  • If you're not sure, don't wear it!  If you have questions, see Mr. Masur.
