Please have your child check for lost items

The lost and found (located in the cafeteria near the gym) is literally overflowing with coats, jackets, lunch boxes and a variety of other items . Please have your child ask their teacher if they can check the lost and found on their way from lunch or PE this week. All the items remaining in the lost and found will be donated to a local charity over fall break!

iPad and Books Fees Have Been Posted to Skyward

Your child's book and IPad rental fees have been posted. Fees may be paid anytime via EFunds or by sending in a check made out to Hoosier Road Elementary. Be sure to put checks in a sealed envelope and include your student’s name, teacher’s name, and student ID (lunch number).

How to Make Online Payments

If you would like to pay your book fees/device rental or add money to your child's lunch account using a credit/debit card, please login to your child's skyward account and click on "District Links" (top right corner of Skyward) and then on "eFunds Online Payments". If you have not created an eFunds account, you will need to do so. You can link your child to your eFunds account using your child's school ID/lunch number (can be found in Skyward under the "Student Info" tab and is labeled "Other ID"). Once you are logged into eFunds, you will click on "Pay for Optional Fees" to pay your child's book fees/device rental or you will click on "Fund Lunch" to add money to their lunch account. Please note that you will need to know your child's book fee amount from Skyward and manually enter that amount into eFunds. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school office at 317-915-4240.
