NP3 High will host a Halloween drive-thru as event for student on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

The drive-thru event will be held in the high school parking lot and bus lanes from 5-7 p.m. Students are encouraged to drive through anytime during the two-hour event to ensure social distancing and shorter wait times.

The NP3 High campus will be decorated the night of the event. Decorations could include a fog machine, balloon arch, tombstones, skeletons, Patchy the Pirate, lights, spider webs, caution tape, music and more.

There will be raffle prizes at the event. In order to win some of these prizes, students must decorate their cars and come in costume.

The most outstanding car winner will have their photo posted on Instagram and will receive a gift card. In order to have an “outstanding car,” students must decorate it in such a way that impresses student government

Students can have their car decorated in a specific theme. They can also take inspiration from pictures posted by student government and use spider webs, prop skeletons and spiders, and more.

Individual students who dress in a costume will receive a goodie bag and a raffle ticket (this includes parents). Raffle tickets will be used to choose three winners for Halloween treat baskets. The Halloween treat baskets will be color themed with red, blue, and purple and full of surprise goodies.

NP3 student government hope to unite the high school community through with event.

“Student government wants you all to know how hard we have been working to propose safe and new events, while trying to stay connected to the student body in a time of confusion and uncertainty,” said student body president Rory Marco, a senior.

  • Student government also wants the event to be safe and asks that students:
  • Wear a mask (required)
  • Dress in appropriate costumes
  • Stay in their vehicle; no walk-ups allowed
  • Drive slow and respect the 5 MPH speed limit
  • Do not throw things outside of the car

Added Marco, “As our first step towards being in-person, I highly encourage all students and faculty to try and attend our Hallowednesday event. Please show some spirit by dressing in costume, decorating your car, or waving through the car window.”
