Virtual Student Update
Drop off times
Torrence Pre-K drop off time - 7:55
Parents, please DO NOT drop students off before the designated drop off times. We have several students who are arriving before our supervision staff has arrived. This creates an obvious safety concern for our students. We DO NOT want to students to be unattended on school grounds. Thank you for your assistance!
Please remember that ALL visitors MUST wear a face covering when they enter the building! This is for the protection of our staff and students.
Remember to send your child to school with a face covering every day! We have a small supply of masks for when students lose or damage their own, but these are not intended to be provided daily.
Face coverings (masks, shields, etc.) will be required in any unstructured areas. Face coverings will be required anywhere students may be exposed to students or where social distancing can not be guaranteed. A recent school board amendment to the face covering policy allows students to be outside without face coverings as long as social distancing is maintained. This includes recess, outdoor specials, and/or classes going outside for instruction. If students struggle to maintain social distancing while outside they may be asked to put their face coverings back on.
Face coverings (masks, shields, etc.) will NOT be required in structured settings, such as classrooms, unless social distancing can not be maintained. When social distancing can be upheld, students will not be required to wear face coverings.

Box Tops For Education
Have you heard?! Box Tops For Education is going digital! No more clipping, no more sending your student to school with a baggie full of box tops. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label. If you see the label, use the new Box Tops For Education app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10¢ each for our school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to our school's earnings online. You can download the app today!!
Casey's Cash for Classrooms
We’re excited to share that our school is participating in Cash for Classrooms, part of Casey’s Rewards. This opens up Hawthorne Elementary to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students.
The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you buy from Casey’s and use their rewards program you can simply turn your points into a donation to our school. Help Hawthorne Elementary make the most of this program and learn more at Caseys.com/schools.
