School Newsletter — October 9th, 2019

Note from the Principal

Dear Hazeldale Families,


This week has an event that is a favorite for many—The Hazeldale Harvest Festival! More information is below in this newsletter. Please remember that you may park in the car pick up lane and in the bus lanes, parallel parking against the curb, for evening events such as this. Do be sure you are not parked in any fire lanes, however. The parking lot fills up quickly, so we encourage walking and carpooling if you are able to.


The Student Success Act needs your input—Speak Up for Student Success


Our October 14th PTO Meeting, 6:30-8 pm, will give you opportunity for discussion and input. We will also have a Spanish translator available at this meeting. For more information and the survey, please visit the Student Success Act webpage.

October 15th, 2019 is the last day students will receive free meals from last year’s benefits.   Every family must re-apply for Meal Benefits every school year. If you’ve already received a letter that says your students are Approved for Benefits, you do not need to do anything further.    Go to www.schoolcafe.com to apply today! Or pick up a paper application at any school and turn it in quickly. As a parent or guardian, you are responsible to pay for all meals received at school. If your application is not processed before October 15th, your students will go into “Paid” status and you will be responsible to pay for all meals they receive at school.    Avoid a gap in your student’s benefits – apply today! Applying is confidential and easy. If you need help, please call Meal Benefits at (503)356-3957.
