Here are some reminders and information to help get our HFES Owls to and from school safely each day:
Doors open promptly at 7:20am each morning. HFES staff will be out on the front sidewalk area ready to assist and greet students. Many working parents are waiting in the line prior to 7:20am so that when the doors open, students immediately start unloading and parents are free to go on their way.
No students are allowed to exit cars until 7:20am when the doors unlock (you can hear it!). Students can unload anywhere along the sidewalk area and walk to the front door. No unloading from left lane please.
The greeters will make sure your child gets into the building safely and greeters inside will make sure they get to the correct location inside.
Kindergarten Car Riders will be taken to their cars at 3:15pm at the BACK of the building. If they have an older student in grades 1-5, they will be dismissed through the FRONT door at 3:25pm with their siblings.
Parents, please remain in the car during dismissal/pick-up. No walk-ups. Car riders will be given a car tag that will help identify the child/parent each afternoon. Please keep your car tag in your car so you will have it each day. These steps will help get students in their cars quickly and safely.
If your child rides the bus, please make sure you let your child’s teacher know what bus # they will ride. Your child’s teacher will also need to know if your child is riding a daycare van, Boys & Girls Club, etc.
It is ALWAYS best practice for your child to go home the same way each day which is less confusing for the students and helps them follow their routine safely.
