Attached please find Ms. Clark's letter dated February 24, 2017 regarding the updates to the SchoolMessenger Communication system.
Good Afternoon Holly Springs Elementary Families,
This is Mrs. Clark, Principal at Holly Springs Elementary School with important announcements.
School Messenger Launch-I’m calling to inform you of an important change in how I share information. Beginning March 10th, our school will begin sharing general information via text messaging and email instead of a weekly automated phone call. You’ll still receive automated phone calls from me, but I’ll reserve them for urgent situations. Before we start this process, you will receive an opt-in message on the cell phone we have on record. I hope you will take a few moments to follow the steps to "Opt-In" to text messages. Or, you can simply opt-in to receive text messages by texting YES to the number 67587 now. A letter was sent home with students today and information is posted to our website. Track 2 letters were also mailed today.
Scholastic Book Fair- Our Scholastic Book Fair starts on Wednesday, March 1st and runs through March 10th. This year’s theme is “Happy Camper.” Information including dates and times for events were sent home with your child. Our Grandparent event for tracks 1 and 3 is March 1st and March 8th for tracks 2 and 4. Family Night is Thursday, March 9th from 5:00-7:30p.m.
2017-2018 School Year-Parents, Holly Springs Elementary is continuing to prepare for the 2017-2018 school year. If you already know that your child or children are not returning to HSES next year for any reason, please email your child’s teacher as soon as possible. You can also email the data manager, Annette Ligons, at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is very important for our school to know families intentions for the upcoming school year.
Track Change Request-Any family interested in a track change should visit our school website. Families may access a track change request form online only. If any parent is not able to access the online form, please come by the school office or contact us. Track change input will be available through Monday, February 27th.
Kindergarten Enrollment-We are continuing to register Kindergarten students for the 2017-2018 school year. Please stop by the school ASAP between the hours of 10:00-2:30 to register your kindergarten student. Register now to be guaranteed the same track as an older sibling already at HSES.
Calendar Option-You can request a school with a different calendar option online beginning February 22nd-February 28th.
Run Club-Run Club begins Thurday, March 2nd!
This message has been posted to the website. Have a great weekend!
