Hawk News from The Principal 10/11

Hello HCES families,

I hope you all had a wonderful, restful fall break!

We are now in our 2nd quarter and report cards will be sent home Friday, October 15th.

We are excited about our PTA Trunk or Treat that will take place at the back of the school on the track on Friday, October 29th. More details will be sent home soon. The PTA Reflections deadline is October 15th.

ACAP assessment information was sent home prior to the break with our 3rd-5th grade students who took the test last year. I have included an information sheet below and I will also provide more detailed information (coming soon).

Our cafeteria is now selling ice cream and students must bring their money by Thursday of each week. Any student can purchase ice cream on Fridays for .75 cents, however, Ms. LaTonya has to know by Thursday if your child plans to buy ice cream. We have asked our teachers to gather this information on Thursday so the cafeteria has time to process our class orders for Friday. Please know that if you have placed a block on your child's EZPay account to NOT purchase snacks, they will be unable to provide ice cream for your child, so make sure you didn't set blocks on your child's account.

If your child has a birthday, you can purchase ice cream for the class to celebrate your child's birthday and it does not have to be on a Friday, however, Ms. LaTonya (our cafeteria manager) does need to know this in advance so she can place her ice cream order. I would contact your child's teacher and/or Ms. LaTonya a few days before the ice cream is needed. I have added her contact below as well as the EZ Pay website that can be found on the HCS website. To find the EZ pay website, visit the HCS website, click on the parent tab and then click on Breakfast and lunch. Scroll down and you will see the EZ pay link.

Please continue to alert your child's teacher if your child or someone in your home is positive for COVID. Masking is required while on campus. If you or a member of your family are positive, we ask that you do not enter our building to pick up your children or their materials. Please call us if you need us to walk your children out to you. If you are positive, please send someone else to the school to pick up needed materials for your children. We are happy to work with you, please call us at 256-428-7180.

Please ensure your child's teacher knows how they will go home each and every day. If you tell them they are a bus rider, your child's teacher must know which bus they are to ride. Please share with your child's teacher. If you are a car rider, please make a sign with your child's name, grade, and teacher's name to place in the front dash of the car when you come for dismissal pick up. This will help us to call their name and expedite the car rider line.

Thank you all for your support,

Ms. Spivey
