SOME NUTS & BOLTS

When will we learn our bus schedule?

Bus schedules will be available through the Bus Routes e-Link which is found on the District website as well as through your HAC account on the School Links page. These will not be available until just prior to the start of school as our transportation department is working tirelessly to configure the routes.


Do incoming 6th graders keep their Chromebooks from 5th grade?

Incoming 6th graders will keep their Chromebooks from their elementary school. Please have your child charge their Chromebook the night before school. We want all students to be ready for learning on the first day of school!


Do you monitor what my child is doing on their Chromebook?

Teachers monitor student Chromebook use during class. We also have a program called Gaggle that screens all emails, documents, and web searches for inappropriate or concerning language and topics. Sometimes students receive an initial email from Gaggle stating that the content of one of their documents is inappropriate. However, if the concern is over safety or the content is highly inappropriate, a copy of the document or image is sent to building and district administrators in addition to students receiving the notification.


Can my child charge their Chromebook at school?

Our goal is that all students charge their Chromebooks every night at home. Students should not be bringing Chromebooks to school uncharged. These devices are used frequently throughout class periods, so students need them ready to go 1st hour. Please help your child get into a routine at night that involves charging their Chromebook.


Does my child need to wear his/her ID every day?

For safety and in order to purchase food in the cafeteria, all students and staff will wear IDs every day while at school. Students will receive their IDs on picture day. They will also receive a Wredling lanyard although they may wear one from home. If your child loses his/her ID, a replacement one can be picked up from the LRC. The first replacement is free; for additional cards, students will be charged $5 to their PushCoin accounts.


Are cell phones allowed during the school day?

Our goal is to provide students with quality learning experiences during the school day and cell phone use impedes this experience. Phones are off and put away during the school day is the district policy. Students should not be accessing their phones from 8:27 am - 3:30 pm. Please support our efforts to keep students focused on learning by talking through this policy at home and by not texting them during the school day. If you need to communicate with your child, please contact the main office. Additionally, if your child is feeling ill, they need to go to the nurse. Students should not be texting parents to pick them up without checking in with the nurse.


Are outside food and beverages permitted during the school day?

If a student is having lunch dropped off by a family member, it must be done through the main office. Food and beverages may only be provided for the individual student. For example, a pizza cannot be purchased for a group of students. And students are not permitted to use apps such as UberEasts or GrubHub to have food delivered during the school day.
