WINTER WEATHER

As colder weather has arrived, please note that students go outside at recess when the temperature (and wind-chill) is 15 degrees or above. It is important that students arrive to school with appropriate dress for the colder weather such as long pants (no shorts), coats, hats, gloves, and/or scarfs. Thank you for double checking that your child is making appropriate clothes choices each day!

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES MADE DURING THE DAY

Parents, please be aware of our policy regarding a transportation change that occurs during the school day. All telephone calls must be received by 2:00PM. This is to allow enough time to accurately deliver messages to teachers, as well as time to confirm the change if necessary. Please do not call the school after 2:00PM to make a transportation change except in the case of extreme emergencies. Thank you!

Notification of Pesticide Application

Per state guidelines, some planned applications of pesticides require school districts to notify parents, guardians, and staff members at least 48 hours prior to application. The information provided will include: name or address of the school where pesticide application is occurring, contact information for more details, anticipated date and time of pesticide application, pest(s) being targeted, description of application area, and pesticide(s) to be used.


The link to Pesticide Notification information can be found on the HSE Schools website (hse.k12.in.us) by clicking on "Schools/Staff", then selecting "Facilities Information" from the menu.

If required notification cannot be posted on the Pesticide Notification site at least 48 hours prior to application, a notice with this information will be posted in the "News" section of the HSE website. The information on the website will be provided by the facilities department, and updated as needed. If you do not have access to the HSE Schools website, or have further questions, please contact the HSE Facilities Department at (317)594-4380.
