Halloween Festivities at Sequoia

Halloween Festivities at Sequoia

The Sequoia Halloween Parade will be held Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 9 to 9:30 a.m. on the playground. Teachers will be sending home specific information about their classroom parties and activities, so please be on the lookout for that information. Because the parade is in the morning and parties may not take place until after lunch, students should come in their costumes and have something to change into after the parade. As always, weapons, or anything that could be construed as a weapon, even if it’s an integral part of the costume, must be left at home. Additionally, masks that obstruct vision or field of view should be left at home. »

Principal’s Corner for Oct 16-20

Principal’s Corner for Oct 16-20

Teachers and cafeteria staff will not allow you to take your child if you do not have an early release slip or the office has not called. Our normal procedure is for the office to call the room and have your child come down with their belongings, or you are sent to the room with an early release slip. I realize we are all busy, and it’s convenient to just grab your child and go on those days. However, it’s an extremely DANGEROUS practice. We... »
