Pasta Bowl

HPE is participating in the HSE 2015 Pasta Bowl as we collect boxes of pasta to donate to local food pantries. Students can bring in donations between September 1-11 and place in the collection bin in the cafeteria. Thank you for your support!

A Note from the Nurse

If you have not done so already, please remember to complete the Online Student Health Information in Skyward (this replaces the green colored health cards that were used last year). The Student Health Information helps to manage and understand each of your children and their possible health care needs while at school. If you do not have computer access, please contact the nurse.

Upcoming Student Birthdays

September 16th- Jessica

Lunch & New Background Checks

All guests and parent volunteers must have their background check completed prior to volunteering at school or having lunch with their child. The online background checks may take up to 6 days to process. You do not need to complete a background check prior to visiting if you have had one done in HSE within the past 3 years. ALL guests must also complete an online anti-bullying training webinar.

For more information on background checks and the anti-bullying webinar, please visit:


The Patriot Cafe will start allowing lunch guests after Labor Day!
