Please be aware Yearbooks are NOT part of your student's picture packet. It is a completely different ordering process. Please use this link to order Hornung's Yearbook. .
Order it now and that's one less thing you need to do later in the year. Yearbooks will be delivered in May, before school is out for the summer

.Hopefully everyone has already submitted their registration forms for the COLOR RUN! Registration is required so that we can order t-shirts and fundraise. Please send in the form if you haven’t, but after today we are not guaranteeing the arrival of the t-shirt & awards.
Students got to meet the new Hornung Mascot this week and will vote to give it a name! A big thanks to our volunteers donning the costume and escorting the Mascot among the kids. The Mascot will be at our Color Run but please try to keep the costume clean from color!

Reporting Your Student's Absence in Parent Connect
There is a helpful feature in Parent Connect that allows you to enter your student’s absence. Simply log into parent connect and click on the link Report Absence. The Report Absence link will open a screen for you to complete. If you have more than one student check the name of the student for whom an absence is being submitted. Add the applicable dates. If you check the All Day flag attendance will be submitted for the am and pm periods. If you do not check the All Day flag times must be entered and attendance will be submitted for whichever periods meet during the time range (based on period schedule). If you use Parent Connect to report your child's absence you do not need to call the attendance line.
