RHS Campus Halloween Policy

As you know, Halloween will fall on Thursday, October 31st.  School will be in session.  As such, the Campus schools, in conjunction with NYPD and School Safety, will be adhering to the following protocols:

  • No costumes, masks, or "make-up" will be permitted
  • School Safety Agents will be most attentive and vigilant during the scanning process for entry into the building.
  • Students found in possession of shaving cream, eggs, silly string, and any/all other items associated with Halloween mischief-making, will be subject to disciplinary procedures

It is the intent of Herbert H. Lehman Campus to provide a safe and secure learning environment for your child.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
