When possible we will be outside for temp checks.

Reminder and Update for Trunk or Treat October 28th 7:00pm SEA Parking Lot:  For those handing out candy, please plan for roughly 140 kids and make sure to arrive and setup your trunk by 6:45pm. When you arrive, we will direct you where to park in order to maintain plenty of space between cars/families. In order to spread out, we will be using more of the parking lot than past years. Please remember to bring a box or table to place your treats on in order to limit contact. For all attending, please remember your masks as they will be required to be worn during the event. We will bring extra masks for those that forget one as it will be required in order to participate. We are also requesting that families stay together during the event. In order to limit the number of attendees, we had to limit this year’s event to only SJS students so we request that families limit their social media posts regarding the event. We hope for the return of all normal procedures for Trunk or Treat next year and are glad to have those joining us this year. Happy Halloween!
