Hallway Sweeps

Hello Humboldt Families:


We are looking forward to a strong start to Quarter 2. Recently, we have noticed that some students are not moving to classes in a timely manner. For that reason, we are going to begin following hallway procedures on Monday, November 21st to encourage students to arrive to each class on time:




  1. Students will review THIS PRESENTATION during Advisory/Foundations this week.
  2. Teachers and staff will continue to support timely transitions during passing time.
  3. Classroom doors will be closed and locked when the final bell rings.
  4. Students remaining in the hall will move to the auditorium.
  5. Students' families will be called after they speak to a staff member in the auditorium.
  6. Students will return to class with a pass.
  7. Students who are tardy to more than one class will receive administrative consequences that may include being dismissed for the remainder of the day.



Please reach out with questions.

Attendance

We are noticing many students arriving late to school after the start time of 8:30 am. Please continue to encourage your child(ren) to be on time to school and in class to avoid further attendance actions. We welcome your continued support and encouragement around this matter.


Winter is fast approaching, and the season can be extreme. Students are expected to attend school every day and on time unless the district declares a e-learning day due to extreme winter weather conditions.

It was a wonderful night and everyone involved felt the love and support for our Humboldt Seniors. Many students were able to thank their parents as well as our staff for helping them be able to attend the evening and getting them to the point where they felt prepared to consider post secondary options.

Family Fun Night

Thursday we held our first Family Fun Night. Although the weather tried to stop us, we still had families and students show up for a night of fun, games and yummy food. A huge thank you to the students that helped with set-up, FFA, PTO, Communities in the School for the food and Ms. Candace in the office for helping with prizes and prepping all the games.Thank you as well to the parents that donated their time and raffle baskets, they were a huge success. Personal thank you to the teachers that donated gift cards and money that were used to help purchase prizes and items. It was a fun night, one that we hope to recreate this spring when it's warmer and more families can join us.
