It seems as though costumes, especially the girls costumes, are getting racier with each Halloween.
To address this, Lazar Middle School has posted a set of guidelines to be posted in classrooms. On Oct. 31, students and teachers can dress up in a costume and all it'll cost is a $1 donation to UNICEF. The UNICEF collection boxes will be in all homerooms.
"This year Lazar Middle School will recognize Halloween by allowing students to wear appropriate costumes to school," said the school. "It is important to remember that appropriate school behavior is expected on Halloween Day and that inappropriate behavior will result in a loss of privilege to participate."
Here's a look at the costume rules:
- 1. Dress-up for students and teachers will take place on Thursday, October 31. Dressing-up for Halloween is optional for both students and teachers.
- Costumes should be:
- Practical and Safe - Students should be able to work at their desks and move throughout the building without being physically inhibited or a hazard to anyone.
- Respectful/Not Controversial - They should not be offensive to a gender, nationality, race, or religious group.
- Modest - Students must wear costumes that cover themselves and adhere to the dress code.
