News & Updates
Greetings HMS Families,
Thank you to all who could make Back-to-School Night! It was great seeing some familiar faces, meeting new families, and being all together.
This year we are working to support students’ reading comprehension and literacy skills across all subject areas. We believe this will translate into academic achievement in every class, furthermore this supports our district’s goal of increasing math and literacy skills. These skills will be assessed three time throughout the year using iReady; the first assessment is this month. Here are some ways you can help us at home:
Encourage your child to do their very best during the iReady assessment and inform them we use their scores to improve instructional practices in every class, not just reading and math
Read together as a family
Start or encourage your child to join a book club (check out the OBOB book list here and talk to Ms. Co about joining a team!)
Promote choice in what your child wants to read. Graphic novels are great at sparking interest in reluctant readers
Suggest books that are movies your child likes. In my house, my daughter has to read the Harry Potter books before watching the movies. This actually has started some good conversations about how different some of the scenes are.
We are off to a great start because of your support and the excellent work of our teachers - thank you!
A Message From Our Kitchen Staff
First, thank you for the work you do at home. Raising children takes a community and so does feeding them!
Many of you have inquired about recent media stories regarding the impacts to our meal service program here at TTSD due to the recent disruptions and delays from our supply and food service vendors. You can view a story regarding this situation here: to National Supply Chain Impact. What this challenge means to us is menu items are unfortunately changing daily depending on what is delivered and what we have on hand. Our school nutrition services staff are adapting and being wonderfully creative with our meals. We are committed to serving healthy meals to our students that meet the USDA school meal requirements. (Breakfast is grain, fruit, and milk) (Lunch is grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and optional milk).
Thank you for your patience and while our menus continue to change, you can always send your child a meal for backup. If they decide they want the school meal, they can save that packed lunch for the next day.

Cold & Flu Season Is Here!
We need your help and your best judgment to keep staff and students at Hazelbrook safe. That includes monitoring your student and your family for symptoms of colds, the flu, strep throat, and Covid-19. Students and staff are welcome to wear masks for comfortability and safety.
We also ask that you please keep your child home if they are sick.
Here are symptoms to be aware of:
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath

Please remember to do the following:
- If your student feels sick in any way, please keep them home and notify Hazelbrook attendance.
- If you are waiting for Covid-19 test results, please keep your student home until you hear back.
- If your student tests positive for Covid-19, please notify Hazelbrook attendance.
- If you student has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 at home or at an outside activity, please notify Hazelbrook attendance.

Student Medication Policy Reminder
The health office would like to remind you that there are specific state laws in Oregon regarding students taking medication at school (prescription or non-prescription). This is for your student's safety.
Here are some important rules to understand regarding self administration and school administration:
- A student is allowed to self-administer non-prescription medications when they are able to demonstrate the ability, developmentally and behaviorally, to self medicate and has permission to self-medicate from a school building administrator.
- A student is allowed to self-administer prescription medications when they are able to demonstrate the ability, developmentally and behaviorally, to self administer medication and have permission to self-administer from a school building administrator, and a prescriber or registered nurse practicing in the school setting.
This is the self administration form: Permission for Student to Self-Medicate
- To administer prescription medication, school personnel must have a written request from the student's parent/guardian which includes signed permission for school staff to give the medication.
- Written instruction includes: (1) Name of student (2) Name of medication (3) Method (by mouth, etc.) (4) Dosage (5) Frequency—how often it is to be given
This is the school administration form: Medication Administration Record and Parent Consent
