Good evening Hurricane Town! Thank you so much for a wonderful first day of school! We appreciate your continued patience while we implement our new drop off and pick up procedures for car riders. As with any new procedure, time and practice will help work out the kinks! A few things you can do to do to help speed up the process... 1. Practice buckling and unbuckling seatbelts and restraints with your child so that they can be ready to quickly and safely exit the vehicle when it's their turn. 2. Make sure your child can carry their own backpack, water bottle and lunchbox and be sure that they are ready with those items when it is time to exit the vehicle. 3. Keep the lane in the front open for bus arrival and allow all buses to enter the flow of traffic when exiting the lot. 4. Please keep interactions with staff on duty to a quick and friendly greeting and we will do the same with you. If you need to talk in detail with a staff member, please call or message us so that we can dedicate the time needed to your questions and concerns. Thanks again for your patience and help as we ensure the safety of all students at Hurricane Town! Have a great evening!
Good afternoon! If you have not already done so, please visit Schoology and watch the video created by HTES staff to explain the new arrival and dismissal procedures for the 2021-2022 school year. We plan to begin this new procedure on the first day of school. We will not be able to invite families to walk their child to the classroom tomorrow, but we will have plenty of staff on duty to assist all children in getting to their classrooms. Doors and the gate will open at 7:35am. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for the first day of school!
Good afternoon Hurricane Town! We would like to invite you to our Open House on Friday, August 20 from 5-6:30pm.
