Covid Reporting During Fall Break

School buildings are closed during Fall Break. If you need to report a Covid situation to your school, please use the Online Reporting tool. You can find this form on the HSE Schools Website or you may click on this link: https://www.hseschools.org/happenings/reopening-hse/covid-19-self-reporting-form

Once you complete the form and submit, someone will contact you to follow up.

Exciting news from your Cafeteria!

Starting after fall break your student will be able to purchase daily snacks during lunch. When they come through the line there will be one or more choices of snacks ranging in cost from $0.80 to $1.25. If you would like your student to have the option to purchase a snack, be sure to keep funds in their lunch account.

If you would prefer that your student not purchase any snacks or limit purchases, or if you have any questions, please contact the Cafeteria Manager at your school.

Breakfast & Lunch Meals are still free, but snacks are not included.

Down Syndrome Buddy Walk

This weekend is the Down Syndrome Indiana Buddy Walk. Down Syndrome Indiana is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk is a great way to support that work. If you're interested, click the link below.


Reminder for Parents: Wearing a mask in the classroom and bus consistently is even more important now with the change in quarantine for students. If ALL students and staff in the classroom or on the bus are masked, they would not have to quarantine if a close contact. Please work with your student to understand the importance of masking in the classroom and bus.
