Outside Door 20 (Early Childhood Door)
As we start our school year, we will have the CASE students enter in the front of the building. The staff will be out at door 1 to assist your child into our building. If you feel your family needs a parking pass for arrival and dismissal, please work with your child's teacher on the first day. We will have a school representative maintaining access to the parking lot daily. Showing the pass or letting us know you are with the CASE program will grant you access to the lot the first few days.
Morning Traffic Patterns
In an effort to maximize the safest traffic pattern possible, we will continue with the traffic pattern exercised for the past several years. In the morning, families / caregivers who drive their students to school may choose to either pull up to the designated “car drop off zone”, which is located on the “school side” of Duffy (southbound) and let their child exit the car on the passenger side or park on Kildare or Kolin and walk their child to their designated arrival spot. Cars will not be able to park along Duffy or they will be ticketed. NO CARS will be allowed in the school parking lots during arrival and dismissal times. Students are expected to report to their designated line-up areas (see arrival procedures).
SAVE THE DATE- Pictures
When school is dismissed at 3:20 pm, students are able to walk home, line up in the gym for their bus, or meet their parent/ caregiver outside of the school. Older children who walk younger siblings or neighbors should meet them in a prearranged location outside of the building and will be dismissed first in order to pick up their sibling or relative. We ask that parent DO NOT park in the back lot to pick up children. Families should park on Kildare or Kolin.

New Family Welcome Celebration
Families new to Hometown School are invited to join us on Friday, August 19th at 8:45 am in the Multi-Purpose Room. This informal breakfast celebration will include a brief introduction to Hometown School and discussion topics including: attendance and lunch procedures, Skyward, Take Home Tuesday, and the Late Start Schedule, followed by a brief Q & A session. We hope to see you there!
Tuesday Take Home
Students will bring home all pertinent school information and classroom work on Tuesdays. Some of this information will also be sent home electronically through our School Messenger Communication System. Information used to send home the information will be used from Skyward. Please look for important information, resources to use at home, as well as celebrations of students throughout each week.
We strongly encourage you to join our PTA at Hometown. We work together to provide many different events throughout the school year for the students. We always work with our volunteers to set them up for success. Please consider joining this organization.
