A special note to Hawk's Hippity-Hop Egg Hunt attendees…
The school and PTO are EGGcited to be able to provide this special day for our students! This is a private event for St. Louis School and Preschool families only. As much as we'd like to welcome children from outside our school community, current COVID restrictions prevent us from doing so. Please do not bring guests from outside your immediate family. We are taking this very seriously; a lot of effort and planning has gone into making this a safe and compliant event. Please do your part by following these simple guidelines:
  • A maximum of 25 individuals may be in attendance at each scheduled egg hunt (this number includes 1 parent per family plus children). Individuals who are not on the guest list will be asked to remain outside the event area.
  • 1 adult per family may attend; no exceptions (this will be strictly enforced to allow as many St. Louis students to participate AND to stay within current guidelines for outdoor social events).
  • All children will need to be accompanied by an adult.
  • Children must be 3 y/o and older to participate; siblings younger than 3 y/o should remain in a stroller or appropriate baby carrier at all times within the event area.
  • Only children will be allowed in the egg hunt; parents must remain socially distanced in the spectator area around the perimeter of the egg hunt.
  • Masks are required for all participants and spectators.
  • Reservations are required for the egg hunts; no walk-in’s (we must have record of who is in attendance).

If you need to modify your reservation to comply with these guidelines, please do so. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in making this a fun and memorable event for our children!
