Principal's Message

Hello Hueneme Elementary Families,

Thank you to our parents, guardians, and caregivers for participating in our parent conferences that have been taking place from November 28th through December 9th. We hope that you find the information helpful and informative. Hueneme staff is grateful for your partnership in education!

Minimum Day December 21, 2022: Please mark your calendars for our first minimum day of the year. ALL STUDENTS will be dismissed from campus at 11:30 a.m. on that day. There will NOT be ASES on that day. If your TK student attends the Catalyst Kids program they WILL be extending on that day. Thank you.

**Please note** Our office will be closing at 12:30 p.m. that day.

Hueneme Student Council Food Drive: Our student council is working with Food Share to collect the most needed food items in Ventura County. If your family is able, please consider donating any off the following: Canned Protein (tuna, chicken, salmon), Beans (dry or canned), Rice (1-2 lb bags), Cereal, Peanut Butter. Thank you in advance for your support and donations.

Winter Break: Hueneme School will have Winter Break from Thursday, December 22nd - Wednesday, January 4th. School resumes on Thursday, January 5th. Hueneme staff wishes you all an enjoyable and restful winter break.

PTA Information: Thank you to our families and staff that placed a See's Candy order in the month of November to help support PTA's fundraiser.

Safety First: Safety is important in and around our school! Many cars stop in the middle of the streets to let their children out of the car or for students to get into cars. There is limited parking at Hueneme and drop off and pick up gets busy! Please do your very best to find a parking spot. This puts our students and families in danger when they run out into the street. In addition, this also holds up the traffic that are also trying to pick up. If we all do our part, I know we can get to and from school safely! Thank you in advance for your help!

Parking Lots: Please keep in mind that the Hueneme parking lots are extremely busy with traffic. If you are dropping off students in the morning at the Clara gate, please pull forward and have students get out of the car. Drivers, please remain in the car so that the traffic continues to flow. This will help our Hueneme community. The other parking lots on 3rd Street are staff parking only. Thank you for your support and good driving!

Entering School: For the 2022-2023 school year, we will have BOTH GATES OPEN as in past years. If your child is having breakfast, please have them enter at the back cafeteria gate from 7:35-7:55. Upper grade students can enter that gate as well. Primary students are welcome to enter on the Clara St. gate. The Clara St. gate opens at 7: 35. Both gates close promptly at 8:00. Late arrivals should report to the office for a tardy slip.

There is NO supervision prior the gate opening. Please do not drop students off earlier than 7:35. Thank you!
