Weekly Defer Dispatch

November 23 - 24, 2020

Interim Reports

If your child is earning a D or F in any of their classes, an interim report was sent home with them today. Even if your child did not bring a report home, families have access to their child's current progress via Home Access Center (HAC). If you aren't able to login, please contact the office via phone or email and we can reset your password.

One Book, One School

Defer is gearing up for our big One Book, One School event in the spring! We’re blown away by the generosity of our community already. We are not even 1 week into our request and have already had 70 books delivered to school!! The message in the box this week: “For the One Book One School Project. May all the students develop a love for books!” Thank you!


If you would like to help us provide books to our students for this project, click on the attached flyer. Thank you for your support!

Water Bottles

Please make sure that your child is bringing a reusable water bottle to school every day. We do not have drinking fountains this year. They have been replaced with water bottle filling stations.

Defer Yearbooks

Reserve your yearbook today!

We have been working hard to make this year’s Henry Defer Intermediate yearbook.
Each page is filled with friends, photos and fun memories! Order your child’s copy today at ybpay.lifetouch.com using your school’s Yearbook ID Code: 4977621

Free Breakfast & Lunch

Free breakfast and lunch for all students has been extended through the end of the school year! If you aren't already, consider taking advantage of these free meals. Our students really enjoy the food that is offered! Students are also bringing home weekend bags of food every Friday.
