Oakdale is excited to have a Halloween Parade!
Please Join us
Due to the cold weather, the parade will be inside in the gym/cafeteria. Please read the following to help make our parade a smooth success. Here is a look at the schedule.
8:40– First bell rings and kids will go to class without parents. Teachers need to take attendance, lunch count, and finish routines before the parade starts.
8:45-9:15- Parents check in at the front office, get a sticker/badge then go to the gym. Please do not go into your child’s classroom during this time or during the parade. We need the space for classes to parade around.
9:15 am -Parade Starts – The parade will start in K-2 grades and work around to the older grades. Please do not join the parade with your child.Please be patient as it takes little ones some extra time to walk or “parade” through the building. Also, you can clap or cheer but little ones are easily frightened if the noise level is too loud.
No Masks or weapons facsimilies allowed
All students should wear their costumes to school. Grade levels will let you know whether students need a change of clothing or can wear their costume all day. Most grades will change out of their costumes.
The afternoon Kindergarten parade will begin at 1:00 pm and will wind through the main corridor of the building.
Please remember the following so everyone has a great experience…
- We encourage students to be creative with their costumes, but please avoid blood and gore.
- Check in at the office – all visitors have to be accounted for.
- For student safety, please arrive before the parade begins. You can park in empty spots in the front lot or on the dirt lot on the North East Side of the school. Please do not park in the teacher spaces on the west side of the building or block the bus parking spots. You might also want to park in one of the nearby neighborhoods or at a church and walk over.
