Band make up session

2017-2018 7th and 8th Grade Parents - On Thursday at 1:15, we will have a make up session for band sign ups for next year. If your child would like to be in band next school year, please plan to attend, if you were not able to attend the first session. You will need a valid ID, and will need to put a down payment on the instrument chosen. Methods of payment will be credit card or check. Please discuss with your child and have an idea what instrument he/she is interested in playing. For those who cannot attend, we will try to hold a final session in August.

Summer reading

All students will be responsible for completing a summer reading assignment. The requirements will be sent home with your students by his/her current ELA teacher. The assignment will be due at the beginning of next school year to your child's new ELA teacher. Most teachers will expect within the first week of school. If your child does not bring home a paper copy, you may locate and print from the school website (available the week of May 29th), or there will be copies available in the front office for pick up during the summer. The path for locating on the website will be to go to our homepage, click the parent tab, and scroll down to the "2017 Summer Review, AP Assignments, and Summer Reading". Please be sure to have your child complete the assignment for the grade level he/she will be enrolled in for the 2017-2018 school year. All middle school summer reading requirements are the same, however, in high school it is course specific. Please refer to your child's schedule for next year.

Cafeteria News

Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of$1.70 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk. Each student is provided a lunch account on to which money may be deposited. Households are also encouraged to log in to their child’s account (using the parent password), go to the “Lunch” tab, and click on ONLINE LUNCH APPLICATION to apply for free or reduced price meals. If you need the parent password reset, please call the school and ask to speak with the Lunch Clerk.

Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he /she will be allowed to charge up to –$15.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk. If a student is later approved for free meals, they will begin receiving meals immediately. However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance. For more information regarding the meal charge policy, please visit our website at: hsaeuless.org, and click on the “Meal Charges” link.
