Flat Family Weekly News

September 26 - 30

We are up to something good at Hickory Flat!

From the Principal's Desk...

Happy Sunday!

I hope you had a terrific Fall Break. We will be back to school tomorrow! Remember, students are tardy if they are not in their seats by 7:35 a.m.

The Flat Family News this week has important information, including:

  • PTO Meeting: Our first meetings will be THIS Wednesday. There are two meeting times but they will include the same information, so you only need to attend one. The first session is at 8:00 a.m. in the Media Center. This will be a hybrid meeting, so you can join in-person or virtually. There will also be a virtual meeting on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. To join either meeting online, please use this link - https://meet.google.com/phw-jexo-agh

  • Henry Futures Parent Workshop: September 29

Please complete your 2022-2023 Online Free & Reduced Meal Application.

We were fortunate that we have been able to provide meals at no cost to all students for the past few years; however, that federal waiver has ended. If you have previously qualified for free or reduced status or believe you may be eligible, we encourage you to complete a Free and Reduced Meal application as soon as possible ensure your benefits continue throughout the 2022-2023 school year.

Completing the application only takes a few minutes, yet the possible benefits for you your family are many. Qualifying families may be eligible for discounted fees for standard tests, as well as college scholarship opportunities.

The Free and Reduced Lunch Application can be completed online from the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus.

If you have questions regarding the school meal application process, please contact Erica Banon by email at erica.banon@henry.k12.ga.us.
