Hearst Weekly Update
September 15, 2019
Good evening Owls,
Thanks to everyone who came out on Wednesday for our first PTA meeting of the year and Back to School Night. It was great to see so many families in attendance and especially wonderful to see how our returning families welcomed new Hearst families into the community. If you were unable to attend on Wednesday, please be on the look out for the presentation from your child's teacher and feel free to follow up with that teacher with any questions you may have.
One another note, lots of kids seemed to be coming down with sniffles and sore throats last week. Please be sure to remind your kids to sneeze and cough into their elbows rather than their hands, so as to minimize the spread of germs. We'll also be reminding them to wash their hands often and wiping down tables, door knobs, and stair railings so that we can all stay healthy throughout the school year.
Hope you've had a great weekend!

News and Announcements from Hearst
Hearst Parking Lot
The Hearst parking lot is reserved for Hearst staff from 7:00am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday. The only exception is for families and visitors who have disability parking placards or permits and require accessible spots, of which there are two in the lot. We know parking along 37th Street at arrival and drop off can be challenging and have seen people attempting to pull into and then back out of the lot, particularly during dismissal. This is dangerous given the number of children moving from the school to the playground at dismissal and also creates challenges for traffic on 37th Street. Please refrain from using the lot until after 3:30pm in order to ensure that kids, families, and staff have a safe end to the day. Thanks for your cooperation!
