Trick or Treat Hours For Today
Unlike some of the previous years, there was little or no controversy surrounding the village’s hours for trick or treating. While every suburb has their own time, trick or treating in Oak Lawn will take place from 3 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31. Children are supposed to be accompanied by a parent after 6 p.m. If you are driving through the streets, be aware, be careful and everyone should be safe. Of course students at District 122 have a half day. Students at District 123 also have an early dismissal. So, don’t be surprised if a couple of goblins show up early.
Oak Lawn High School All Set for Halloween
The school posted a message stating, “Dressing-up in costumes and celebrating Halloween has become a tradition at OLCHS. The Deans’ Office would like to politely remind students if they are going to participate in Halloween on Tuesday, October 31, to make sure their costume is school appropriate and within good judgment of the school dress code. A student’s face cannot ever be covered by a mask or completely covered in face paint. Costumes that are suggestive in nature should not be worn in school. If a costume does not provide appropriate coverage, wear additional articles of clothing. Costume props should be safe and appropriate for our crowded hallways. Please do not bring props that violate the school discipline code such as lookalike weapons, drug paraphernalia, and gang-themed materials. Any student wearing inappropriate costumes will be asked to change into regular clothing. Thank you for your cooperation.”
