For the last class, students are welcome to come dressed in a Halloween costume. While masks are welcome, students will be required to remove any masks for identification during the first five minutes of class to meet Outschool's safety and privacy policies. If the teacher deems a costume inappropriate, your student may be asked to remove costume for a more learner-friendly option.

Please be aware that this course uses materials that may be harmful to your student if used inappropriately.  If you think your student may use any class materials inappropriately and/or potentially cause harm, please provide adult supervision for your student.
