Drop Off and Pick Up

Please do not drop students off on the opposite curb from where school is and walking them across. This holds up the line, but is also dangerous. I see it happen constantly and while we'd like to think that drivers are being careful when they drive around our school, it isn't always the case. We don't want your child to be in a tragic accident.

If you are picking up your child from K or 1. You cannot park in the driveway of St Germaine! You may park in the lot and walk to our school. Please park on the street in the allowable areas or even walk when it s nice day. We are trying to keep everyone safe and while it may take a few more minutes, isn't that time worth someone's life? The driveway is reserved for emergency vehicles and while I know it will only be a few minutes, that is also not our property and they can ban us if we continue to have problems as it is a private lot.

CoVid Information

Families will be notified if their child is found to have been in close contact with a CoVid positive case at school. Close contact is if your child is within 3 feet of this person for more than 15 minutes without a mask. The only time they would be considered close contact would be at lunch when students have masks off. The remainder of the school day, students have masks on. Mask breaks are less than 15 minutes.

If your child is found to be a close contact then they will have to quarantine for a period of time. More information will be given to you regarding your particular circumstances. Students may also be quarantined due to showing symptoms.

When students are quarantined, they will be given work for someone to pick up in the foyer of school. Students will get in invitation to a Homework Help Google Classroom to log on between 3:30 and 4:30 to get assistance from a Hannum staff member for work that they are struggling with. They just need to log on during that time and someone will be available to help them while they are quarantining.

Hannum Afterschool Clubs

Most of our afterschool clubs are for our older students, but I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that when our students stay for clubs, they end at 4:30. This is when the office closes, so if a parent/guardian is late picking up your children, you are holding back the Hannum staff from going home to their families.

We understand that sometimes things happen and kids are picked up late. That's fine. It's when it becomes habitual that we have a problem. If you child is picked up late 3 times (without a phone call or any notice) they are out of the club. We have many students that want to participate, and we can't always accommodate them, so we do have a wait list.

If children are picked up habitually late....even with a phone call, I will be making a phone call to let you know how much longer we can keep your child. There have been times that either myself or my staff have missed appointments waiting on parents. Please be on time, clubs are a whole hour after school should be over.

Hannum Yearbook (2020-2021 School Year)

Our Hannum Yearbooks from last school year have been delayed. We are expecting them to come within the next month or so. We have been in contact with Van Gogh, which is the company that puts the book together, and they are working at getting them to us. Thank you for your understanding.
