Hardin Middle Update

Dr. G's Principal Newsletter

August 2015

Student Schedules May Be Picked Up at Hardin Effective July 29th. *We will still hold our regular Schedule Pick-Up on August 6th (2:00pm - 5:00pm)* By opening up alternative times for those who can make it we are hoping to alleviate long lines.

Due to the hard work of our front office and a desire to serve our students and parents as soon as possible we are offering an opportunity to pick up schedules in our main office from 7:00am - 3:00pm beginning Wednesday July 29th through Wednesday August 5th. You must have your Completed Paperwork or have Completed/Updated Online before your schedule can be issued (If you completed the online registration just indicate that on the registration form. If you did not register online, bring the completed packet you received in the mail). Our hope is to alleviate long lines on Aug 6th in addition to serving the needs of parents/students who can not make it that day.

School is just around the corner. Please remember:

* Incoming 8th graders must have submitted verification of their TDap Vaccine prior to starting school. If you have not turned yours in, please bring verification to registration.

* Mark your calendars for "Back to School Night" on August 6th. We will have a brief presentation in the gym at 6:00 pm. Following our presentation you will be able to tour the building with your child following their new schedule. Student leaders will be on hand to answer questions and/or point you in the right direction.

Thanks for your patience while the hillside wall is completed.

Due to inordinate rain in June, the construction project on the hill between Hardin and Blackhurst is considerably behind schedule. It is now apparent we will not be able to use the parking lot for quite a number of weeks after school begins. As a result, the traffic flow and available parking spots will be limited for our upcoming events (Open House, Registration, First Day of School etc.) We will do our best to accommodate everyone - parking everywhere and anywhere. Our hope is that we all can work together and model patience and kindness as this project moves towards completion. Thank you in advance. We have a great school with amazing students and parents. We will get through this together:)
