Education briefs for Oct. 26, 2013: Honor Society to host children’s Halloween event
Members of Moffat County High School’s National Honor Society will be offering a special Halloween activity to Craig and Moffat County children.
“Trunk-or-Treat” takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday in the south MCHS parking lot. Parents can bring their kids up to the high school where NHS members will provide a safe trick-or-treating experience, handing out candy in the parking lot while also having their cars decorated for the occasion.
Kids also can vote for their favorite decorations.
For more information, contact NHS sponsor Kristin Ingalls at 970-826-6392 or at email@example.com.
Ridgeview Elementary will not dress up for Halloween
Parents of students at Ridgeview Elementary School are asked not to let their child attend school Thursday wearing a Halloween costume.
Principal Amber Clark said the no-costume policy has been in place for several years and was implemented to address safety concerns with younger students who might not be able to handle the scarier parts of the holiday.
For more information, call 970-824-7018.
