We are very excited for Link Crew Orientation at the Honeoye Falls – Lima High School and we are looking forward to meeting all of our new students at Orientation Day, Tuesday, September 5th from 7:30 am – 12:00 pm.

For the past nine years our school has participated in the nationally recognized Link Crew Program. Link Crew is an organization whose sole purpose is to help incoming students feel more comfortable and assist them to achieve success starting in their first year of high school.

The Link Crew orientation and transition program is designed to welcome and support new students by assigning them a junior or senior Link Leader to serve as a mentor during this first year. The Link Leader is a responsible older student who has been hand selected from a large pool of applicants; The leaders are kind, enthusiastic, a good role model and a positive leader. Below please find detailed information of what you and your student can expect for this year’s HF-L Freshmen Orientation Day.

  1. Your child can expect to receive an invitation to Freshman Orientation Day in the mail. If your child has not received the invitation by AUGUST 21st, please call Sara Harvey at 585-624-7050.

Ex Officio on Board of Education Open to Juniors & Seniors

July 26, 2023

Dear Members of the Junior & Senior Class:

I hope that you have been enjoying your summer vacation. As a new academic year approaches, I am thrilled to share a unique and valuable opportunity with you. The HF-L Board of Education offers a position for a high school student to serve as an ex-officio member for a one-year term.

As an ex-officio member, you will have the privilege of sitting alongside the Board of Education members during all public meetings. You will have the opportunity to review agenda items and give appropriate input regarding matters discussed and voted on by the Board.

While you will not have a voting role or be part of executive sessions, this position grants you the opportunity to provide valuable input on agenda items discussed and voted upon by the Board. This hands-on experience in legal policymaking will be both educational and empowering.

To be eligible for this role, you must be a current junior or senior at HF-L with at least one year of enrollment in the district prior to your service on the Board. I will conduct brief interviews with all interested candidates. Following interviews, I will approve and recommend the selected student(s) to the Board of Education.

If you are interested in interviewing for this position, please contact Mrs. MacMillan no later than Friday, September 8th at 624-7051 or stephanie.macmillan@hflcsd.org. Interviews will be scheduled the following week. Do not hesitate to contact the high school main office if you need additional information or have any questions regarding this process. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss this opportunity.

2023-24 Calendar

You will be receiving a printed copy of the 2023-24 school calendar, it will be sent home with your youngest child on the first day of school. If you do not receive a calendar, please contact the main office of your youngest child's school building and request a copy.

Free and Reduced Lunch Application

Did you know that your family might qualify for the free and reduced meals even if you haven't in the past? The income eligibility guidelines have expanded. Please take a look to see if you qualify.

Children need healthy meals to learn. The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District offers healthy meals every school day. For the 2023-24 school year, breakfast costs $1.90 and lunch costs $3.15. Milk costs $.70.

Your family may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Fill out the application below to see if your family qualifies.
