JUST A REMINDER

 

NO Food deliveries:  Remember that no food deliveries are allowed during the school day.

 

Students/Parents, please take note:  At this time, transportation is not allowing extra riders on our buses due to current capacity. 

 

Student Parking at school:  Please make sure you park in the student lot at the north (stadium) side of the building (the parking lot between Bradley and Memorial.  There is no student parking in the front lots that face Walker Rd.  We are starting to check cars parked in the front.

 

If you drive to school, you will need to register your car.  There is no cost, but you must be registered. 

Go to Canvas, then “announcements” from the beginning of the school year, fill out the google doc and come to the Main Office for your parking tag.  Reminder that parking for students is on the north side of the building.  That is the lot between Bradley and Memorial all the spots in front of the stadium.

 

Parents / Students:  If a student has a zoom/in-building appointment with an outside source, and they will be staying in the building for this, they still need a parent permission note for missing class(es).  This is the same procedure as though they are leaving the building.  They will need to sign out and back in at the Attendance office to make sure they get excused.  It can be reported in School Messenger, or an email, hbrattendance@hboe.org, or give your student a note to give the attendance office.

If we don’t receive notification from parents, the student will be unexcused.

 

NO Change or Vending Machine refunds:  The office does not have change or refunds.  For refunds, you will need to call the number on the machine.
