Greetings Hawks, 

Congratulations!!! We made it through the first week! Exhale and enjoy the long weekend ahead. We hope you have a great week #ontheHil. Remember to check our website for information and updates. Here are a few reminders:

  • Make sure your child knows how to go home. Dismissal can be stressful for students. When they are unsure of transportation, that adds to the stress. Remember, always call the main office if you have transportation changes or updates. Teachers do not check their emails regularly during the day. Please note bus service can take time to set-up. If you are requesting a new bus service, please make a back-up plan until the service is established.
  • Follow us on our Twitter for Bus Departure information or major bus delay updates. You can also follow along through Here Comes the Bus App. Click Here for More: Here Comes the Bus You can also follow Transportation News from WCPSS here: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/14462
  • Send your student with lunch or lunch money! You can also add money to your student's lunch account by visiting www.MySchoolBucks.com, a direct link is on our website, under the Parents tab.
  • Kindergarten Families: Remember, your student will begin attending regularly on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.
  • Safety is always a priority #ontheHil. Our doors remained locked at all times. Always ring the bell for assistance when visiting campus. Never encourage your child to open a door through text messaging.
  • Students may carry cell phones; however, they are not allowed to use them in class without the clear instruction of the teacher.
  • Remember our carpool loop is a cell-phone free zone. Please refrain from using your phone while in the carpool area.
  • If you need to pick your student up early, remember to do so before 2:30 pm.
