FALL BREAK BEGINS.....NO SCHOOL OCTOBER 16-20. ENJOY!

Message from Principal Jackson

It’s hard to believe we are a quarter of the way through the school year! Students are being challenged to learn new things and think outside the box each and every day. They are persevering and teaching us things along the way as well! Thank you for your continuous support of our HSE21 initiatives as we continue to grow our students as problem solvers, collaborators, discoverers and creators.


Remember to view your child(s) report card in Skyward. Simply go to Family Access and click on Portfolio to see your child's report card. Enjoy the week long break!

What To Do If You Suspect a Disability/Child Find

If your child is age 2 ½ through 21, attends any school within the Hamilton Southeastern Schools boundaries or you live in our community, and you suspect your child may have a disability, you should contact us for more information.

· For children at least two and a half years of age, but not yet age-eligible for kindergarten, you should contact the Preschool Coordinator at Brooks School Elementary School, 317-915-4250.


· For students who are eligible for kindergarten through age 21, you should contact your child’s teacher, school counselor or building administrator to discuss your concerns and explore the steps to be taken. If your child is not enrolled in public school, you should contact the counselor or building administrator in the building your child would attend if enrolled.

Response-to-Instruction (RtI)

RtI is a general education initiative designed to provide high quality instruction and interventions matches to student needs, and using learning rate over time and level of performance to make important educational decisions. The RtI model is based on a three-tiered model of service delivery with a focus on early intervention and prevention of academic and behavioral concerns. Data collected during this process provides valuable information regarding students’ educational progress and response to interventions. Students who do not demonstrate a response to well-implemented, scientifically-based interventions at the Tier 3 level would be referred for an educational evaluation to determine eligibility for special education. RtI is a component of HSE’s Child Find Process.

ON-LINE SCHOOL DIRECTORY

We have had a number of parents wanting to find ways to schedule playdates, parties, etc. with their children’s classmates. HSE has made this possible with our Online School Directory. This service is only available for those families that choose to “OPT IN”.


You may select what information you would like other parents to see (such as address, phone numbers) for birthday invitations and the like. If you would like to “OPT IN” please follow the steps below:



  • Login to Skyward

  • Click on “MY ACCOUNT” tab in the upper right corner

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the School Directory section

  • Choose which information you would like to share
  • Click Save in the upper right corner



Please note that the only people that will have access to this, are the families at Fall Creek Elementary. If you have older children at other schools, their information will only be shared with the families at their school. We hope this will help our students to be able to stay connected outside of school hours

SAFE VISITOR BADGE

Anyone wishing to volunteer in the school must have a SafeVisitor ID Badge. Please note this policy also applies to anyone wishing to join students for lunch (after Labor Day). Simply follow the quick link on our FCE website to apply for a background check. This process takes 5-7 days.
