This week we welcome back our 5th graders that are choosing the face-to-face option!

For our remote students, please continue to join us online. We are grateful to have you, whether online or in person. 💕

However, there are a few students who have not joined online, or have joined minimally and have not been turning in assignments. Those students are currently far behind the others. We cannot expect our teachers to fully catch those students up to the others. It is time to make the decision to support your children through remote learning, or send them back to school.

Transitioning to Face-to-Face Policies, Schedules, and the Updated School Year Calendar

  • The uniform policy is still in effect. However, it will be relaxed in that a uniform shirt, uniform pants (no jeans), and a belt (for grades 1 and up) are required. Remember, we transitioned to only red shirts for this year. Please see the link to the uniform policy.

General Reminders for Students Returning to Face-to-Face Learning

  • Students will need bring their own water bottles, marked with their name. No glass water bottles! They will have the opportunity to refill their bottles if necessary.
  • Snacks will be sold for .50 each, and ice cream for $1.
  • Parents are not allowed out of their vehicles during dropoff or pickup.
  • Parents cannot bring lunch to their child during the school day. If a child forgets their lunch, he/she can simply eat from the cafeteria.
  • Students will need a computer bag to transport their OWN (not school-issued) laptops if they choose to bring them to and from school. If a student brings a laptop home, it must be recharged before returning the next day. With few exceptions, all school-owned laptops will remain at school.
  • Students will be provided with mask breaks, PE, and recess. We will also be on a lunch rotation so that classes can take turns eating outside and in the cafeteria.

For remote learning, please be sure your child/ren are up and ready for school in order to sign into Schoology on time. This means dressed properly (i.e., no pj's, shirt, proper pants/dress, etc.), fed, and free from distractions. We ask that parents remain out of the screen view as much as possible.

Virtual Title I Meeting- Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 6:00 pm.

We will post the link for the Virtual Title I Meeting on our FB page @ 6:00 on Tuesday evening. Please watch the video, then "sign" your name, as well as the names of all your children that attend HIES, underneath the link. The names beneath the link will serve as our required sign-in sheet.

If you do not have Facebook, you can still access the video on our school's website. Simply go to the website (www.dolphin1.org), find the Facebook scrolling window, and find the meeting post.

The link will also be sent by email. You can reply to the email with your name to indicate you completed the video.

At this time we are not accepting recycling. We will let you know when that changes.
