Can't Hide Our Hound Pride!

Howdy Hounds!


It was another great week to be a Huggins Hound! We are so proud of our students, and the amazing things we are already seeing them accomplish in the classroom.


Please note that we do not have school on Monday in observance of the Labor Day holiday.


Parent Orientation/Curriculum night is scheduled for this coming Thursday, September 8th. We will have two identical sessions, 5:00-5:45 and 6:00-6:45 so that parents can choose one to attend. Classroom teachers will be sharing pertinent information related to curriculum, instruction, and classroom/campus procedures. At 7:00pm, we will be holding our Watch DOGS kickoff meeting in the cafeteria for any dad, grandfather, uncle, etc. that is interested in volunteering at our school. Both information about parent orientation/curriculum night and Watch DOGS will be posted for families that cannot attend.


We are looking forward to celebrating grandparents at our Grandparent's Day lunch on Friday, September 9th. Please be sure to scroll below for addition details and an RSVP form.


Finally, if you are the parent of a fifth grade student, please be sure to check out the information below about our Student Council. We are very excited that Ms. Martinez, Ms. Moss, and Ms. Jurkowski are partnering together to sponsor our council this school year!


We hope everyone has a safe and relaxing three-day weekend! We will see you back on Tuesday!



Sincerely,


Bethany Cunningham

Grandparent's Day Lunch 2022!

We are looking forward to celebrating our Huggins grandparents on Friday, September 9th during grade level lunches! Please use the RSVP form below. Grandparents that have previously visited Huggins and have previously been scanned into Raptor, will have a preprinted badge if they RSVP. We are asking that all guests enter the school through the gym doors on the west side of the building. Volunteers will be stationed on the porch to check guests into the school. Please remember that all guests must have a valid ID and wear a Raptor badge at all times. We are encouraging all grandparents to bring in a lunch versus buying in the cafeteria if they choose to eat with their grandchild. Please note that parking will be limited. Because of this, we are asking all guests to arrive no more than 15 minutes before their grandchild's lunch time. Following the 30 minute lunch period, we are asking visitors to exit the school and parking lot to allow space for additional guests to park. Due to capacity limitations, grandparents and guests will not be permitted to visit the book fair. The book fair will be open during parent orientation on Thursday, September 8th from 5:00pm-8:00pm.

Pre-K and Kindergarten SmartTags

Ensuring the safety and security of the students riding on buses is our highest priority. To facilitate and support this safety initiative the District has implemented the Smart Tag system to promote and ensure a positive school bus riding experience for all Lamar CISD students. Students are issued Smart Tag ID cards with an electronic chip Smart sensor (please do not modify the ID cards, or place holes in the card). The student’s name is printed on the front of the card, and there is no student information stored on the card.


Students must have one or more Transportation Release Guardians listed within the students Smart Tag Parent Portal.

To ensure the safety of the children, parents/guardians or an authorized person is encouraged to be at the bus stop each day when their child is picked up and dropped off.

· Drivers will only release a student to approved guardians at the stop and must be in possession of a picture ID so the driver can verify release authorization via the Smart Tag system. If a driver is unable to verify release authorization the student will be returned to campus.


  • Parents must register this information within their students Smart Tag profile via the Smart Tag Parent Portal.


  • Parents are also responsible for keeping the information current.


  • Parents/guardians and children should know their route number, school name, and stop location.


  • Children in grades Pre-K/KG (i.e., Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten) MUST be received by an adult, parent, or authorized receiver at the designated bus stop and designated time. This could be an older sibling.
  • Parents should be at the stop ten (10) minutes prior to bus arrival.


  • Individuals receiving a Pre-K/KG student from a bus, will need to be in possession of a picture ID so the driver can verify release authorization via the Smart Tag system. If a driver is unable to verify release authorization the student will be returned to campus.


  • Should there be no one at the stop to receive a PK/KG student, the child will be taken back to the school for the parent to pick up.


  • Should this occur more than twice in a semester, the third occurrence may result in the child losing bus riding privileges.

Lunch Visitors

We will be welcoming lunch visitors the second week of school to give our teachers and staff time during the first week to teach lunchroom procedures. Starting August 29th, anyone coming to school to have lunch with their child must be listed in Skyward, as a guardian or on the emergency contact list. Lunch visitors will have a designated area to eat with their child, and we ask that no food is shared with other children.
