Returning to School:

Students did a great job returning to school this week.  We look forward to our Cohort C 4th and 5th graders coming back on Monday 2/22.  A few reminders:

  • Our buses have not been very crowded and all students are screened upon arriving on campus just as is done in carpool. We encourage families to consider using bus transportation when feasible.
  • If you are dropping your students at school in the morning please assist them in preparing to exit the car once you have been screened (put backpack on, put mask on, etc. ) so they can exit independently and quickly. Adults should NOT be getting out to the car with children. 
  • Afternoon carpool – if you do not have a carpool tag you will be sent around to the front office to pick up your students. You will need to show ID. This is to ensure we are releasing students to the appropriate adult.

 

HES Virtual Game Night:

Our Parent and Community Engagement Committee is excited to host our first virtual Family Game Night at HES on Tuesday February 23, from 5:30-6:45. Check out this flyer for the many options from karaoke to family dance to family art projects.   Hope to see you there!
