KINDERGARTEN PARENTS

Please be sure you to look in backpacks for the letter sent home from me.  I have shared some important and exciting information with you.

 

CARPOOL

-Remember to be in line in the mornings in plenty of time for your child to arrive in class by 7:45.  ALL CARPOOL SHOULD GO THROUGH THE BACK DROPOFF UNTIL STUDENTS ARE TARDY AT 7:45. At this time, students will have to be signed in at the office.

-All cars should be in line by 3:15 in the afternoon.  At 3:15, teachers will discontinue calling numbers and the students will be escorted to the front.  Parents who have not been picked up by 3:20 will be charged $30.

 

FIFTH GRADE PARENTS

Fifth Graders will be going to overnight 4H camp this year and staying in the dorms.  On March 12th, they will leave early and arrive back at school in the afternoon on March 13th.

 

MESSAGE FROM THE BOOKKEEPER

There will be a $25 charge on all returned ACH (electronic check) purchases on MySchoolFees, effective immediately. It is very important that when choosing the electronic check payment you make sure to have your routing and account numbers entered correctly. If you have any questions, you may contact me at smoody@hoover.k12.al.us or 439-2511.

 

CHROMEBOOK CASES

We have chromebook cases for sale for parents who are interested.  These cases are hard shelled and zip on all 3 sides.  The case can be kept on when the device is open or closed.  They are $25 and can be purchased on myschoolfees. You will need your child's student id and the option to purchase is under student fees.  This is first come, first serve.  We recommend having a case and purchasing the insurance. (photo above is not exact case but similar)

 

THANK YOU PTO

Thank you to our PTO!  With your support, our PTO was able to purchase a new refrigerator for our teacher workroom.  They also provided a wonderful grab and go lunch today (donated by Chicken Salad Chick).  Thank you to our PTO for all you do for us and our students.

 

FIELD TRIPS

We will begin planning and organizing field trips for the year.  Be looking for the field trip permission forms to come home soon.  All field trips will need to be paid on MySchoolFees.  We will be trying to get them on the site as soon as possible so you can begin making payments.
