Safety in the Hornung Parking Lot and Drop Off Area…

Parking Lot - I just needed to mention that our parking lot has had several close call incidents. Please be cognizant of our Hornung Families who are walking in the parking lot. Many parents have let me know that their children or themselves (or both) have had parents backing up being unaware that people are close to their vehicles. Please take your time and be careful!


Drop Off Area – This has been another area of concern, mostly of parents cutting in-between cars instead of coming down to the crosswalk where I’m conducting traffic. I know it’s inconvenient and takes another few minutes, but please make these good choices for the safety of our everyone concerned…Thank you!!!


Sincerely, Jack Yates

Counselor Corner

Counselor Corner!


Welcome to February, families! Here we are again with another month and another lesson topic for classrooms. We will be visiting students to talk about Empathy and standing in the shoes of others. By looking at multiple perspectives, we can gain a better understanding of how our actions impact others and the world around us. We will discuss how others feel and where they are coming from. This provides a way to learn what we can do to help our family, friends, and peers when they need us most.


Lets Connect: If you are noticing some behaviors that are interfering with your child’s success in the classroom, please feel free to complete my parent referral form and we can work together to determine if supports are needed here at school.


More Resources: We also have our BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home!
