Ahhh, Fall. Cool, crisp air, apple picking, pumpkin carving, and – of course – Halloween! Join us over the next few weeks as Pay4SchoolStuff.com is going to share with you our favorite Halloween tips and tricks!
For the most part, Halloween is an equal opportunity holiday. It’s one that isn’t (technically) religious, and thus just about every child in America gets to participate together. While it’s a fun day for children with costumes and candy aplenty – it can definitely cause a bit of stress for the parents and teachers who are tasked with keeping them safe.
In some communities, Halloween is actually a regulated event. There are curfews designed to keep children safe (and, surely, to limit intrusions on residents who don’t want to be up late handing out candy), rules about wearing masks, and even age restrictions on who is allowed to trick-or-treat! And most communities observe some sort of “Halloween back-up plan,” dictating that trick-or-treating will be held on a different date in case of inclement weather or – in some cases – if the day of revelry should fall on a Sunday.
Halloween also poses a bit of a conundrum in schools. In recent years schools have placed restrictions on the types of costumes that are able to be worn, typically asking that all students refrain from wearing masks to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff. And, of course, to keep sightlines free so that the students can do a bit of learning between their candy-eating!
If your parent-teacher group has decided to get involved in the Halloween spirit and to host an event for the community, there are nearly endless possibilities! And, of course, Pay4SchoolStuff.com will be there for you along the way – from helping you to collect volunteer signups, RSVPs, and registration fees (electronically!), to printing off guest lists and depositing all of the funds raised right to the bank!
From now until Halloween we’ll be sharing a series of posts with costume, party, and safety tips! Be sure you’re also following us on Twitter (@Pay4SchoolStuff), Pinterest, and Facebook for daily updates, tips, and tricks!
