Fire Safety

I know that one way around this might be by using contact paper for
everything that you put on the walls and doors.  Contact paper is more
fire resistant than regular paper would be and less likely to go up in

Good Luck!

In my experience, this has always been a concern of fire marshalls.  On
at least two other campuses, I have been able to negociate at least
certain period of time (one evening for trick 'o treats, or homecoming or
Christmas) to be allowed elaborate decorations.  Visits are made,
contests judged and materials are removed by the end of the evening.

This was a good compromise for us.
