Food Policy

As you are planning for the upcoming year, be sure to review the Wellness policy for the district: (Board Docs J07.06 - http://www.boarddocs.com/in/hses/Board.nsf)

Goal 5: Classroom, grade level or school-based activities should limit the amount and choices of food made available to students during the school day.

  • Food
    1. Staff members will not use food items as rewards. Carbonated beverages cannot be served to students.
    2. Reward parties (pizza party, popcorn party) will be limited to no more than two per semester per classroom.
    3. Food used as part of the lesson or unit must take into account the health needs of students and be curriculum based. For grades K-6, a staff member using food to supplement a lesson or unit must have a permission slip on file. This applies to after school clubs/activities and PTO-sponsored events where parents are not in attendance.

If you have any questions, please see Randy or Kim.

HSE Teaching and Learning

“The last one of the year…” You hear that a lot around the end of May when you’re in education. We are one of the few professions that starts and ends the year in the middle of the calendar. But here we are with the last HSE Teaching and Learning blog of the year. When you look back to the beginning of the year, you might feel a bit like the sign to the side.

This week has a little bit from each of us. Some of us reflect on the year, and some look forward in anticipation of what is coming (perhaps faster than we want it to).

Reflection and Anticipation

Find time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate this summer, and find time to anticipate what is yet to come. It’s not always easy, but it’s always good to be in the profession of helping children.

Thank you for all you do.

Your HSE Teaching and Learning Team

Summer PD Opportunites

Summer District Network Outage

To accommodate network growth, HSE Technology will need to perform an upgrade to key components of our infrastructure. As a result, beginning at 1:30pm on Friday, July 15th, all network resources will be unavailable for the remainder of the day. Users will not be able to log into their computers and phone service as well as Internet will be unavailable as well.

Email / Office 365 will still be accessible from outside of the HSE Network.

Our apologies for the inconvenience but we appreciate your patience and understanding.
