Parties are open only to the students on your roster. Siblings or students from other classes may not attend. We will also utilize a Red Ticket exit this day and students will be able to be signed out from their classroom.
To help with the number of visitors and volunteers on campus this day we have created a pre check-in form. Please find the link below with the other EOY event pre registrations to help with the process on the last day of school.
We want to avoid as much waste as possible so we are asking that you take a moment to fill out this Google form if your student will need a sack lunch on the last day of school. The deadline to complete this is Monday, May 22nd at 3 p.m.
Please complete this form if your student will require a sack lunch on the last day of school, 5/25, which is also an Early Release. Students will take the sack lunch with them.

School Supply Pre-Order for 23-24 School Year
ORDER BY JUNE 16, 2023 FOR BEST PRICING AND FREE SHIPPING.
Herff Elementary is partnering with EduKit to offer a convenient way for our families to order school supplies for next school year. EduKits are custom made for our school and contain only teacher-requested, school-approved items!
Your student's order will be available at Meet the Teacher in August.
Extended ordering is available from June 17 - June 30. Kits ordered during this time will include a $12.95 shipping fee and will be delivered to the school shortly before school begins.
A Note from Nurse Avery
If your student has medication in the clinic with Nurse Avery, these must be picked up no later than 5/25/2023. Please reach out to Nurse Avery at email@example.com or 830-357-4309 with any questions or to coordinate medication pick up. All medications not picked up by 5/25/2023 will be disposed of in accordance with district policy.
Message from BISD Transportation Department
Please remember, all “ride home with friend” or “Ride alongs” need approval from the Transportation Department Prior to getting on the bus. Parents need to call and make sure there is room on the bus for a ride along. (830)357-2970.
We ask that we have this information by 1:00pm so drivers can be properly notified. (email to the teacher is not enough)
So many of our buses have double runs or very full ridership, we are unfortunately not able to accommodate everyone, every day. Additionally, we are having to combine some routes with shortages and need to make sure those who are signed up to ride the bus, have their seats available and that students are safely on their scheduled bus.
Thanks for your cooperation.

23-24 Parent Planning Feedback Form
As a parent, I share many of the same worries about a new school year. Will my child like his/her teacher; will he/she have friends in his/her class? With my counselor hat on, I feel that you play a vital role in creating cohesive classrooms. This form will give you the opportunity to give input for the 2023-2024 school year. The information you provide will be used as we begin to look at forming classes for next year.
Please know that specific requests for a particular teacher will NOT be honored. If a teacher is named on this form, the form will be considered invalid and will not be seen by administration.
**To be placed in a class for next year, enrollment must be complete in Skyward**
See Something, Say Something
School safety is very important, and it's up to all of us to work together as a team to prevent bad things from happening.
If we all stay alert and work as a team to report dangerous or suspicious activity, we can help keep our schools safe.
If you call after 2:30 p.m. the office will transfer you to the classroom, but it is possible the teacher may not answer if they are teaching.
Please note the following procedures that will be in place to help this process go smoothly when it begins.
- Visitors MUST check in at the front office by presenting their ID and obtain a visitor's pass.
- Visitors will be able to eat with their student(s) outside in our courtyard. We have wonderful picnic tables. No friends or classmates will be able to join.
- You are welcome to bring food for your student(s), but it cannot be shared with other classmates.
- Visitors will NOT be able to walk with students back to their class after lunch.

- All vehicles should stop at the crosswalk when pedestrians are present.
- Be on the lookout, especially in the mornings when it is still dark.
- The crosswalk is also in the school zone, therefore all vehicles should adhere to the posted speed limit sign of 20 mph.
We appreciate your help in ensuring the safety of our students.
All foods brought to campus for special occasions such as birthdays MUST have an FDA approved label with ingredients and allergens legibly listed.
It is best to have treats delivered to the office by your child's lunch so they can be eaten in the afternoon.
Birthday Marquee Announcements
Don't forget to celebrate your student on their birthday with an announcement on our marquee! Please purchase your announcement at least two weeks prior to the birthday date. The child's first name only will run on the marquee the entire week of their birthday. All funds go to back to support our school!
Our application is now 100% online. Paper CHC forms will no longer be accepted. Anyone volunteering on campus must complete the application and receive their approval by email before arriving to the volunteer event.
This is the academic calendar for the 2022-2023 school year. All student holidays are reflected.
