Communication with families is very important to the HES staff. If are not receiving text messages from HES, please contact Anna Blackmer, Data Manager, to be sure you did not opt out of this option or to be sure we have the correct information on file. I use the text messaging feature for event reminders or to communicate critical information. For example, I sent a text message out the morning of the Code Yellow. If you did not receive that text, please check with Anna.

Thanksgiving is just 4 days away. Wow how the year has flown by so far. On behalf of the HES staff, I would like to wish all our families a Happy Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, joy and many blessings! We are very thankful for our amazing students and supportive families. Enjoy your family time, and we will see tracks 1,3 and 4 on Monday, November 27.
In an effort to increase student independence/responsibility, and maintain safety for students, if students leave personal items or homework in their classrooms at the end of the school day, they will not be permitted to go back to their classrooms. Please understand that teachers may have meetings/conferences or there may be no adult in the classroom. Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter.

Happy track out track 4 and we welcome back track 1 on Monday, October 2.
Now the the greenway is officially open, we anticipate an increase of walkers to and from school. I wanted to outline a few guidelines to ensure the safety of our students. 1. Elementary students must be accompanied by a parent and/or older sibling if walking to or from school.
The parent and/or older sibling must cross the student at the crosswalk by the bus loop.
Morning walkers will enter the school building with the bus riders through the cafeteria doors.
If a student is to walk home in the afternoon, the parent and/or older sibling must wait in the front lobby of the school.
Please be sure to communicate how your child it to leave school through a note or phone call to the office.
