Chalk Day & yoga on the athletic field Oct 30

Field Day 2019Field Day 2019

Friday, Oct. 30, will offer two opportunities for students to come onto campus in an outdoor, socially distanced way—just in time for Halloween!

Straight from your suggestions on the student survey, Maggie Walker will host “Chalk Day” in the student parking lot, a day for students to decorate a parking space in their own creative way. Drawings, positive messages, and/or any other chalk creations are welcomed. Since Halloween is the next day, we invite students to wear costumes if they choose!

Students will also have the option to participate in “Yoga on the Field” at 10-11 a.m.

Students may sign up for one or both of these optional events.

How will MLWGS carry out these events safely? Students who wish to participate must follow these guidelines:

  • Students who wish to attend Chalk Day must sign up for a 30-minute slot between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Oct. 30. Up to 20 students can be drawing during each time slot, and they will be spaced at least six feet apart. A Sign-Up Genius will be posted on each class Schoology page this coming week. Feel free to coordinate with friends when signing up.
  • A separate Sign-Up Genius will be available for Yoga on the Field later this week as well and will include details about what to bring.
  • Students must wear masks intended for COVID protection at all times. Students will be temperature screened upon entering the parking lot or the field. Students should arrive via the parking lot on Elizabeth Street (bus loop) and report directly to the checkpoint on the sidewalk at the top of the steps leading down the student parking lot.
  • MLWGS will order chalk to give to students, who should take it with them when they leave. Students may bring their own chalk, but cannot share it with other students.

Costumes are invited, but you must adhere to the following CDC guidelines when planning your costume (if you choose to dress up):

  • Do not use a Halloween-costume mask as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose and leaves no gaps around your face.
  • Do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask because it can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
  • View the CDC website for complete details.

We plan to take plenty of pictures for the yearbook and, since not everyone can attend at once, pictures will be posted so that everyone can see the finished product and other classmates’ costumes.
