Celebrating Halloween Respectfully and Safely
Halloween occurs on October 31st, this is a good time to remind everyone that Halloween is about fun, it is not intended to offend, threaten or stereotype another person or group. A safe and respectful campus is important at North Island College.
Please think before you dress up. While planning your Halloween costume be respectful and sensitive in your choices. Do not mimic cultural, racial or ethnic groups, and do not wear costumes that could cause people to be concerned or feel threatened about their safety (for example: scary clowns, inclusion of fake weapons, etc.). Characters that act in a threatening manner are not acceptable on campus.
North Island College’s work in this regard is regulated by NIC policy #2-11. If you have questions about your costume choice, please check with the Student Services office.
Thank you for helping to create a respectful and safe environment at North Island College!
