This is Halloween, This is Halloween!

Halloween is just around the corner, this also means that there will be a lot of people trick-or-treating, having parties, and going out to celebrate. Staying safe is important during the hustle and bustle of Halloween night, there are many different precautions you can take to make sure you and others can have a fun and safe time.

If you plan on going out at night, keep in mind that wearing dark clothing will make you less visible to drivers, try adding bright or reflective aspects to your clothing or costume so you can be seen. Going out with a group of friends is not only fun, but safe. After trick or treating, reward yourself with your loot of candy, but make sure to check that the candy has not been tampered with, check for already opened packaging, or foreign objects in the candy.

There are also ways to make Halloween safer for others,

“I decide to go with a group of friends, and what I do is: I make sure that we all stick together and when it gets dark outside we carry flashlights on us, and we all stay safe,” says Justice Presley ‘20.

“I always make sure my phone is at 100% battery, so when I use my flashlight or if I need someone to call, I just pull out my phone,” says Carlos Campos ‘20

You may notice teal colored pumpkins outside of homes this Halloween, these are thanks to the “Teal Pumpkin Project,”  put on by “Food Allergy Research and Education.” These pumpkins represent households that will hand out non-food goodies like glow sticks, and small toys. This helps to include trick-or-treaters with food allergies, so that they can have a safe and fun Halloween.

One thing that South does annually is “Safe Halloween Night.” The leadership team and different clubs set up booths in the high school and hand out candy to provide a safe place for kids to trick-or-treat and also stay out of weather conditions.

“It was a lot of fun especially when I was younger because it was warm and dry, and you could just come on in, and everyone was so nice there, “ says Isabelle Scottlind ‘20.

Most classrooms are decorated in different themes, and the students themselves dress up in costumes to make it a fun environment. The school is open from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm for kids to trick-or-treat and enjoy Halloween night safely.

The candy is donated from students in their 6th period classes, the class that donates the most amount of candy wins a prize, and the candy is given to the kids during the event.

“The kids were really happy to see our costumes and to get candy, we give them a lot of candy,” says India Hartle ‘20

Remember to stay safe, and help keep others safe on Halloween night!
