Principal's Message

Please read the following message from our AMAZING PTO about the

Color Run and Pink Week that just took place!!!

Sincerely, Jack Yates

Hornung Elementary Principal


Color Run - A huge thanks to all of you that submitted registrations for the COLOR RUN on October 1st!!! We have over 470 runners registered! A reminder that “Heaven on a Roll” will be onsite with their food truck on Race Day, so let them do your cooking on Friday. Race times are set:


Junior Kindergarten/Kindergarten: 5-5:20 pm

1st Grade: 5:25-5:45 pm

2nd Grade: 5:50-6:10 pm

3rd Grade: 6:15-6:35 pm

4th Grade: 6:40-7:00 p


We will ask people to attend during their child's assigned time slots to help with crowd control, but they can run at any time if they have multiple children or scheduling conflicts.

Pink Week - We appreciate your support during Pink Week. Our kids brought in change to support St. Joes’ Cancer Center in Brighton. It was wonderful to see everyone wearing PINK on Friday.


Your PTO,

President: Deanne Ferrell

Note from the Attendance Secretary

Please call in your student's absence to the Attendance Line every day they are absent from school. Please give a brief reason why they are absent, whether it be a vacation, personal or illness. If your student is ill, please provide a brief description of their symptoms. If you don't include specific symptoms the school will call you for more information. If you do not call in your student's absence, a Robocall goes out around 2 PM. If you receive the Robocall, that means your student has an unexcused absence.

Please pack a change of clothes

Please make sure you pack a change of clothes in your child's backpack EVERY DAY. This is for ALL grades. You never know when your student may have a nosebleed, have a spill, get muddy or have a bathroom accident. If they have a change of clothes, then we can take care of it, otherwise we will need to call home for you to bring up a change of clothing. Thank you for your cooperation.

***PICTURE DAY IS NOVEMBER 9TH***

Counselor Corner

Hello from your Hornung Elementary School Counselor! I am so excited to welcome you all back for another amazing year! Although some things this year may still look different, your counselor is available to help support your children with Social-Emotional Learning. I will be providing classroom lessons, small group activities, and individual support this year. This month's lessons will focus on building connections in the classroom with peers. The Elementary Counselor Team also has the BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have, and I will do my best to support your child.

The McKinney Vento Act

The Brighton Area Schools is part of a consortium to serve students in temporary living situations that provides financial support for educational needs, referral for housing, clothing and other needs, general support and technical assistance. To ensure compliance with federal law, all school staff must help identify student living in the following situations: emergency shelters/transitional housing, motels/hotels, car, parks or public spaces, shared housing due to a loss of housing or economic hardship, or living temporarily with non-parent or guardian.

The district’s homeless liaison is Starr Acromite and each building has trained staff members to assist in the endeavor. Our consortium contact at the Livingston Educational Service Agency is Candice Uyttendaele.


Please contact your building principal or Starr Acromite at 810-299-4040 for information/assistance.
