Husky Happenings- Family Edition

Alpha Hart Lewis Elementary
Good Afternoon Husky Families,
The school year at Alpha Hart Lewis is off to a great start! I personally want to thank each and everyone of you for being patient with us as our systems adjust to meet the needs of our scholars. I would also like to thank you for sharing your amazing scholars with us!
As we begin to move into the school year, I want to remind families the more your scholar can read at home, the more proficient reader they become in the classroom. If you are in need of books for home, please do not hesitate to reach out.
I hope that this school year continues to grow into an amazing time full of engaged learning, connection, and community.
Brian Rehg, Principal
Kelly Isenogle, Assistant Principal
Change in Transportation:
If you are needing to change your scholars transportation for dismissal, please notify the office prior to 2:30pm. This will allow us to make sure that the scholar gets to the correct location prior to dismissal procedures beginning.
Students dismissing early:
If you are picking your child up prior to 2:45pm, please call the office in advance and pick your child in the office in order to sign them out. If you are picking your scholar up 3:00pm or after, you will need to pick up your scholar at parent pick-up.
Thank you for your assistance with making sure that scholars are where they need to be, to dismiss in a safe and efficient manner.
