Principal's Message

Hello Hueneme Elementary Families,

Happy May! I hope this newsletter finds your family healthy and looking forward to the remaining months of school! As we all try to stay healthy, please remember:

  • Passive Screen your student at home: Please continue screening your students at home for COVID-19 symptoms. If they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, keep them at home and notify the office.
  • Fever: If your student has a temperature of 100 degrees and is experiencing other symptoms, please keep them home. Students must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.

Parent Conference: Parent conferences are next week May 9-13. Dismissal times are as follows: TK-K dismiss daily at 11:30 except for Tuesday May 10th which is a field trip. Dismissal time for the field trip is 1:30. Grades 1-3 dismiss at 1:20 and grades 4&5 dismiss at 1:40 daily. Wednesday's dismissal is Tk-K: 11:30, Grades 1-3: 12:05, and Grades 4&5: 12:10

Intra District Transfer Paperwork: A paper was sent home this week with all Hueneme students regarding intra district transfers. If you would like the opportunity to move your student to a different school in Hueneme district for the 2022-2023 year, please fill out the form and return it to the school office by May 20, 22. If you would like your student to remain at Hueneme Elementary you do not need to fill out the form.

CAASPP Testing: From May 16th to June 2nd Hueneme Elementary will be participating in CAASPP testing for students in grades 3-5. A flyer went home this week sharing testing tips:

  • Get a good night's rest
  • Eat a healthy breakfast or eat breakfast at school
  • Stay focused and do your best
  • Parents talk to your student so that the are scared or worried about this test.

Art Show and Caine's Arcade: Save the date- Friday, June 10th! Hueneme classrooms will be hosting an art show to round out the year! GATE students will also be displaying the games they created for Caine's Arcade. We hope you can join us for this fun, family, outdoor event.

Construction Update: Please pardon our dust! You may have noticed that Hueneme is undergoing some construction! We are in the process of bringing new HVAC units to every classroom on campus. They are also updating the electrical and making campus safer with a new fire alarm system. We hope to have this project completed in late August!

Kindergarten Registration: Hueneme is currently registering for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year. The hours are 9:00-10:30 daily and Wednesday's 1:30-2:30. If these times do not work, please call the office and we can make an appointment for a time that will work.

Safety First: Recently, there have been many cars stopping in the middle of the streets to let their children out of the car or for students to get into cars. Please do your very best to find a parking spot. This puts our students and families in danger when they run out into the street. In addition, this also holds up the traffic that are also trying to pick up. If we all do our part, I know we can get to and from school safely! Thank you in advance for your help!

Entering School: For the 2021-2022 school year, we will have BOTH GATES OPEN as in past years. If your child is having breakfast, please have them enter at the back cafeteria gate from 7:40-7:55. Upper grade students can enter that gate as well. Primary students are welcome to enter on the Clara St. gate. Both gates close promptly at 8:00. Late arrivals should report to the office for a tardy slip and temperature scan.

There is NO supervision prior the gate opening. Please do not drop students off earlier than 7:40. Thank you!
