Hess News

Hello Hess Families!
There will be only two entry doors this school year. If students would like to eat breakfast they must enter through Door A at 8:30. If students arrive early for the Morning Reading program, they must enter through Door P and report directly to the library. Students should not arrive earlier than 8:30 am. Door P will be locked at 9:05, so all students must enter through Door A after 9:05. Every child is expected to be in their classrooms by the 9:10 tardy bell.


Please be mindful and courteous in the parking lot. Cars may not sit or stand during entry or dismissal. A constant flow of traffic is expected. This will be strictly enforced. Student safety is our number one concern!


Students will be dismissed at their grade level pod doors. Please arrive on time to pick up your students. Contact us in the office if you have any questions. Let’s make it a great first day back! Go HAWKS!
