A Note from the principal
We would like to remind you that students should leave any "unauthorized communication device" turned off and in their backpacks. The HCS Code of Conduct states...
Students are not permitted to use wireless/electronic devices at school without express permission from the school principal or designee. (Devices include but are not limited to cell phones, cell phone accessories including earbuds and headphones, computers, or wearables.)
Students are allowed to use earbuds or earphones when using their Chromebooks and sound is necessary. Students are not allowed to use wearables or cell phones during the school day. A wearable is an electronic device that is physically worn by individuals in order to track, analyze and transmit personal data. Wearables would include Apple watches or any such device that can be used to communicate through text or voice messaging.
We understand that some students need their communication device when they go home, so we allow them to be off and in the backpack until the student gets home. Please know that most backpacks are hung in the halls and are not constantly monitored. The school is not responsible for any lost or stolen devices, but we are always glad to assist in finding a missing item, should that occur.
Thanks for your support,
Dr. Stocks and Mrs. Williams
Please continue checking the health of your child every morning before school for overall wellness. Take a temperature EVERY morning and determine if signs of illness exist. Students with a fever of 100 degrees or higher or who are exhibiting any signs of being ill or have COVID symptoms should not come to school.
We will continue to follow the district's protocol for notifying parents of close contacts of students who have tested positive for COVID.
We want to continue to keep our students in school, so it is going to take each of you staying mindful of illness, encouraging your child to wash or sanitize hands frequently, and keep the face covering on inside.
* If you would like your student to go home via a different mode of transportation one afternoon, please write a note indicating the change. Be sure to include the student's first and last name, the date and your signature on the note. The student should give the note to their teacher first thing in the morning. The teacher will then send the note to the front office. If you do not send a note for a transportation change, whatever you documented on the most current transportation form will be the mode of transportation used for your student.
If you forget to send a note the day of the change, and are in the area, you can drop off a note at the front desk before noon on the day a change is needed.
No email or phone calls for a transportation change will be accepted. If there is an emergency, you must call and speak to an administrator.
* Please review your student's carpool number with them (their number is what is on the carpool tag you were given). Please review the way it could be called out. For example, if the number is 132, we will call out one-three-two and one hundred thirty-two. Teaching them the different ways their number might be called is helpful. For carpool to flow smoothly, it is imperative that your child knows their carpool number.
* For afternoon carpool- Please have the carpool tag hanging from the rearview mirror the entire time you are in carpool, meaning from the time you enter the property until you have your student in the car. (If you are unable to hang the tag from your rearview mirror, please place the tag in a plainly visible area in the front windshield.) Also, once your car has loaded, please DO NOT pull around the other cars ahead of you unless directed to do so by one of the adults.
* If your student attends aftercare with the YMCA, park in the front parking lot and walk to the right side of the school to pick up your student. If your student is supposed to go to YMCA aftercare daily and you are picking your student up early, they will not be in the carpool line unless you sent in a note changing transportation for that day.
If you have any questions regarding afternoon carpool, please call Officer Katie at 205-439-3215 or Mrs. Jessica Todd/front desk 205-439-3200.
