Halloween Costume Guidelines


On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, students will be allowed to dress for the Halloween holiday. Students are allowed to wear costumes, however those costumes must allow students to participate in the day’s activities. Clothing must be in compliance with current dress code rules, e.g. clothing shall cover the midriff, underwear, back, and cleavage at all times. Skirts, shorts, dresses etc., must be mid-thigh or longer when the student is seated. Tank tops, low-cut tops and spaghetti straps will not be permitted. Straps must be at least 3 inches in width.

Also, please note that the following are not allowed:

  • Masks and full face paint
  • Weapons and facsimiles of weapons
  • Costumes with reference to drugs or alcohol

Students may have temporary hair color, however, the hair dye will need to be completely removed when the student returns to school on the next school day.

Students who are not in compliance with the established dress code will be asked to change.

If you have any questions, please contact the FHMS administration at 801-412-2450.
