Ms. Bates Class’s Trick or Treat Rules

Make sure you wear a costume that fits and is safe.

Never enter anyone’s home while trick or treating

Walk on the sidewalk safely

Never go trick or treating alone. Go with an adult.

Be careful of lit Jack O’ Lanterns

Cross streets safely at the corner with an adult. Watch traffic closely

Don’t eat candy before your parents examine it to make sure it is safe.

Don’t eat too much candy or you may get sick.

Don’t Trick or Treat at night if possible.

If you have to go at night make sure you have something on your costume that is lit like  a glow in the dark bracelet, or reflectors, or even a flashlight.

Do not go down dark alleys or take shortcuts. Stay on the sidewalk
