The last day of school is Thursday, May 25th. This will be a 1:15 dismissal for students. Zenith will have normal business hours.
8th Grade Promotion
The ceremony will be held this Friday in the gym. If you are planning to attend, please make sure you sent an RSVP by last Friday, May 12th, as that was the deadline. Space is limited. Parents may arrive starting at 2:45. At 2:50, we will begin allowing parents into the gym. All students will be receiving an 8th grade completion award during the ceremony. Students must still pass classes and STAAR exams for promotion into 9th grade. All other academic awards earned this school year will be sent home during the first week of summer with final report cards. This is due to grades not begin final until May 26th, which is the first day of summer break for students and a teacher workday. We look forward to this first annual 8th grade ceremony and hope to see you there.
All morning and Saturday tutoring will not be held for the last 2 weeks of school.

The peak of the cold and flu season is upon us. To prevent widespread flu in the school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. To decide whether or not to send your child to school, please consider the following guidelines:
· Fever (greater than 100 degrees, your child may return to school only after his or her temperature has been consistently below 100 degrees, by mouth, for a minimum of 24 hours)
· Vomiting (even once)
· General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches
· Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough
· Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose
The following are good hygiene habits to teach the students to prevent the spread of the flu:
· Wash hands frequently
· Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth
· Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, use a paper tissue, throw it away and then wash hands
· Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Colds are the most contagious during the first 48 hours. A child who has a fever should remain at home until "fever free" for a minimum of 24 hours. Keeping a sick child at home will minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom.
Thank you in advance for helping make this year at school as healthy as possible. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of$1.70 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk. Each student is provided a lunch account on to which money may be deposited. Households are also encouraged to log in to their child’s account (using the parent password), go to the “Lunch” tab, and click on ONLINE LUNCH APPLICATION to apply for free or reduced price meals. If you need the parent password reset, please call the school and ask to speak with the Lunch Clerk.
Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he /she will be allowed to charge up to –$15.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk. If a student is later approved for free meals, they will begin receiving meals immediately. However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance. For more information regarding the meal charge policy, please visit our website at: hsaeuless.org, and click on the “Meal Charges” link.
Papa Jonhs pizza will be served every Wednesday at no extra charge, taking place of the regular served lunch. The meal will include: milk, 1 slice of cheese pizza, a veggie and/or fruit.
