Halloween won’t be the same this year, so local public health officers have published a guide to Halloween activities by risk level for families to use. Traditional trick-or-treating is discouraged, but there are lots of other ways to celebrate the holiday safely.

City Playgrounds Reopening This Week
In happier news for families, Palo Alto playgrounds are reopening this week! City crews are cleaning each park and installing new signage; as soon as they’re ready, they’ll officially reopen and be added to the list linked above. (Due to the high volume of visitors it receives, Magical Bridge Playground will reopen at a later date.)

Escondido, Nixon Campuses Reopening Next Week
The first round of PAUSD school reopenings begin on Monday, October 12, with transitional kindergarteners through first graders the first students to head back. So please be mindful when driving in school zones, especially in mornings and afternoons.
