2014-2015 Kinder Student Pick-up Plan
The former system of “some go to parent pick up, some go to the bus and some wait in the office” is no longer working. Between the parent-pick-up and the wait-in-the-office students we didn’t always know where to find a student. And I absolutely cannot live with that. So I did my research and found that my sister schools all have parents/siblings sign-out kinder students at the classroom. So that’s how we will do it too. Please park and wait near the office until the 3:05/1:35 bell. Then proceed to the classroom to pick up your child. Or if your child has an older sibling they can go sign them out and walk home or over to parent pick-up with the younger sibling. Thank you for your understanding in the adjustment of this procedure.
2014-2015 Plan de Recoger los estudiantes del Kinder después de la escuela
El sistema anterior de “recoger los estudiantes, algunos van al camión y algunos esperan en la oficina” ya no funciona. Al recoger los estudiantes y esperar a los padres en la oficina, había mucha confusión y algunos niños se extraviaban. Y yo definitivamente no puedo permitir que continúe este problema. Así que hice mi investigación y encontré que las otras escuelas usan el sistema que los padres recojan a los estudiantes en el salón después de la escuela. Así es como los vamos hacer también. Favor de estacionarse y esperar afuera de la oficina hasta que sea las 3:05 o 1:35/que la campana suene y continúe a proceder a la clase para recoger a su hijo. O si su hijo tiene un hermano/a mayor puede ir a firmar e ir al área asignada para recoger a los estudiantes o caminar a casa. Gracia por su apoyo en este nuevo sistema que empezaremos este año.
After School Parking Lot Situation
HLS is sharing our campus with Crane’s newest school, Gowan Science Academy. Gowan Science has 240 students and they are using the “new wing” on the north side of our campus. Their hours are 8:00 am to 2:50 pm. Our hours are 8:15 am to 3:05 pm. We don’t anticipate a problem in the morning but we do know the afternoons are always congested – and adding 240 students will only add to the issue. To help us you can plan to not even arrive until 3:00 pm. By that time we hope most of the Gowan Science students will have been picked up. In the past parents arrive as early as 20 minutes early to begin the line-up of cars. This absolutely will not work this year – please stay away until 3:00.
No matter how we work it, our parking lot will always be crazy in the afternoon. Our entrance is on a major street so back-ups are extra noticeable. Also we don’t have the obvious neighborhood streets nearby for parents to stake out. If you feel comfortable you may ask your child to meet you in a nearby location. Some used are: The Oasis Church parking lot – and we will have a crossing guard to help them across Avenue C. Or you can use the LDS Church parking lot on the other side of our District Office – all west of our campus. The third option is West 15th Street, the neighborhood just behind our school to the north.
Open House hours are changing for next year because we are trying to accommodate more parents. Mark your calendars for:
Thursday, July 30th - 6 to 8pm
Friday, July 31st - 8 to 10am
