Greetings Marshall Lane Families,

Some end-of-the-month notes for you as we wrap up a spook-tacular October.
1- Halloween is coming and this year, students will have the opportunity to wear a Halloween costume to school on Monday, October 31. Participation is optional. Here are the guidelines to help your student with an appropriate choice of costume. 
     • Costumes must be worn over regular clothes so they can be taken off and        placed in student backpacks if the teachers diredt students to do so.
     • Costumes must be comfortable and appropriate for school—no blood or gore, no weapons or accessories, minimal face paint.
     • No full facial masks
     • No inflatable costumes
     • Scary clown costumes or horror-themed character costumes are not permitted.
     • Students will be responsible for making sure that all items are placed in their backpack, if they remove their costumes. Items left at school may not be retrievable in time for Halloween.
     • Regular school activities, such as PE, recess, and lunch will take place on October 31. Parents, please help your student determine if their costume is appropriate for these activities. Students will need to remove their costume and place it in their backpack if they are concerned about damaging it or being  able to participate in school activities.
2- Don't forget Pumpkin Fest takes place on October 29 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Check your email for more information about this signature event sponsored by our PTA and the dedicated parents at Marshall Lane.

Hi Marshall Lane families,

In response to parent concerns about ways to increase traffic safety, the district is arranging for the installation of speed bumps at the upper lot to discourage excessive speed during student drop-off and pick-up. Speed bumps are already in place in the lower lot, so adding this element of safety helps us set a consistent expectation for drivers on campus (a picture of the engineering proposal is attached). 
One thing that attached the aerial photo makes clear—and over which we have no control—is the parking set up that requires cars to back up into oncoming (or waiting) traffic when attempting to leave. It's a reminder to please exercise caution, awareness, and patience with other drivers during drop-off and pick-up. 
Thanks for your help in making sure students and families remain safe at our school.
