A Message from Dr. Blount

Hutsell Families:


Our teachers have been busy bagging and labeling student belongings. You should have received a call or message from your child's teacher with your family number, date and time for pick-up/drop-off. We will be working out of the bus loading zone so please enter through the side parking lot and drive around through the bus zone, following the posted signs. Please remember to return library books and borrowed devices with their chargers. See you there!


Have a great week!


Sincerely,

Dr. Margie Blount

Hutsell Elementary Principal
