Toys For Tots

Toys for Tots

As the Holiday Season approaches, please consider helping the STEM Club support The Kade Project in collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys for kids in the area. We all know of families in need, families with illness, job loss, or other issues. Some of these families go without gifts for their children during the holidays. A small toy, doll, LEGO set, or stuffed animal can go a long way to ease the burden on parents who are struggling. Let's support our students as they work to impact their community during a special time of year.

The High School donation box is located in the main entrance vestibule by the Main Office. Donations will be accepted until December 10th. The STEM Club will help transport the boxes from all the HF-L schools to the Community Center after school on December 10th.

A special shout out to Melissa Boldt's classes for always stepping up with donations. Thank you to everyone for your consideration and tremendous, annual support.

Clothing Drive Competition- Donut Breakfast to Class Donating Most Clothing

A clothing drive will take place from November 15th to the 19th! Donate new or gently used clothing, hats, gloves, and blankets. All donations will be going to Hearts for the Homeless. The grade with the most donations will win a donut breakfast on November 23!

The Monroe County Department of Public Health and the Honeoye Falls-Lima High School are conducting the 2021 Youth Risk Behavior Survey on November 23, 2021. Students in grades 9-12 will be asked to take this online survey during first set. This survey will assist HFL, and schools across Monroe County, to identify behaviors that increase the risk of adolescent physical and mental health problems.

Student participation in the survey is voluntary; students can skip questions they do not want to answer. We encourage students to participate. Student responses will allow for timely and accurate information that can be used to create comprehensive programs at local and county levels to address teen needs.

Student responses are confidential. The survey is completed online with no personally identifying information attached.

Attached find a Frequently Asked Questions document and Parent Permission form. If after reading you would like to have your child opt out of the survey, please complete and return to the Counseling Center by November 22, 2021.


Honeoye Falls-Lima to Conduct School Census

The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District will once again conduct its resident census to update its information on pre-school and school-aged children in order to plan for changes in student enrollment. Families with children enrolled in grades K-12 at HF-L, families with children enrolled in private and parochial schools, and residents with no children in the District will all receive the census form through the mail and are asked to respond. All information gathered will be used solely by the Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District.

It is important to note that this is a local census and is unrelated to the U.S. Census.

Residents will receive the District census form (which will be printed on pink paper) by mail the week of November 17, 2021, and are asked to reply verifying their information as soon as possible in one of three ways by December 7, 2021:

District website - visit https://www.hflcsd.org/page/census-2021 to fill out the online census verification form and click submit.

Telephone - Call the District Census/Central Registrar's Office to verify your information at (585) 624-7123.
