A note from Mr. Freeman:

November 20th, 2014:

 

Dear Parents,

 

I know that we talk quite a bit about reading and math.  Yes, these are both very important to the success of your child, but school is more than these two academic areas.  ELA, English Language Arts, is a large block of our school day where we do reading, but additionally we do speaking and listening and writing in combination with reading.  Mastering our English language is more than just being a good reader.  We want students to be able to express themselves verbally and with the written word, and we want them to be good at it.  And, yes, we are spending a large block of time on our math learning, but there is still more!

We really want you to know that we are teaching our students how to be successful learners no matter what subject they are studying.  Being a successful learner incorporates many learner traits, and we are working on those in a school-wide effort as well as teachers working on them in the classroom.  We are, of course, teaching kids to have grit and what it means to have it, what it looks like and sounds like when we show grit and perseverance to work at something that isn't necessarily easy.  We are talking about students having "zest" or a passion for learning: we want our students to enjoy the process of learning and have a positive attitude and a willingness and desire to learn and enjoy the school experience.  Additionally, we want students to have self-control so that they can stay on task and persevere through the learning even though they want to do something else at that time such as distract their neighbor.

Students need to become independent learners where they are responsible for their own learning by being prepared for the task given to them by their teacher.  The ability to be ready when the teacher is, be organized for the upcoming learning and be attentive is the beginning of that independence.  This doesn't happen over night or even over the course of one year.  Students are developing into this kind of learner and developing all of the learning traits mentioned above.  So, it isn't just a matter of learning subject matter, we recognize the importance of learning how to be a good learner, too.  These things work together for success, and we are here to help every one of the Hucrest Students be successful in life and in whatever measure that means to them as individuals.  Supporting them now gives them the tools for assuring that success later.  Parents, thanks for your help in that mission, too!

Mr. Freeman,  Your Principal

Please remember that with the One Call Now system (Emergency Closure Notice) that it is IMPERATIVE that the school has accurate contact information in the case of an emergency so that we may be able to reach you any time of the day or night.

Thank you!

*********************************************

DRESS CODE

To promote the District's educational mission and ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for both students and staff, the administrators in Roseburg Public Schools have adopted a Dress Code for elementary, middle school, and high school students.

The basic responsibility for attire to be worn at school or school related functions rests with the student and his or her parents or guardians.  However, a student's dress and appearance may be regulated when, in the judgement of the school administrators, the student's dress or appearance:

--poses a health or safety hazard;

--promotes illegal or discriminatory conduct; or

--is likely to cause a disruption of the educational process.

Decency, good taste, and weather-appropriate functionality are to be maintained in dress and grooming by all students.  Additionally, any student's dress or appearance that is considered contrary to basic, good hygiene will not be permitted.  Each building administrator has the right to determine if student dress or appearance is inappropriate for school; to that end, students are expected to meet the following basic rules and guidelines:

1.  Student attire that is too revealing cannot be worn at school.  Undergarments must be covered at all times during school or at school-related activities.

2. Clothing, body art, accessories, or any other items that advertise substances which are illegal for minors (drugs, alcohol, tobacco products, etc.) or which are otherwise inappropriate (profanity, sex, obscenities, violence, hate, etc.) are not to be worn at or brought to school or school-related activities.

3.  Dress and grooming shall be clean and in keeping with health, sanitary, and safe practices.  For example, all students must wear shoes that are in good repair, stable for surfaces at school, and that do not pose a safety hazard to the wearer or others.

4.  Dress or appearance should not lead school administrators to believe that a student's hairstyle, make-up, apparel, body art or accesories are gang related, promoting illegal or discriminatory activity, disrupting or interfering with the educational process.

5.  Standards for dress and grooming in special activities should arise directly out of the needs of the activity, as determined by the activity supervisor. 

Additionally, Hucrest Elementary School may make specific recommendations regarding appropriate school attire for Hucrest students.

WALKING WEDNESDAYS EVERY WEDNESDAY!

In order to encourage great physical health as well as great academic health, we encourage all our students who live near our school to bike or walk to school every Wednesday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OUT OF AREA ATTENDANCE:

If you are the parent of a student in our school, yet you reside outside the Hucrest boundaries, you need to fill out a new "Out of Attendance Area" request form.  They will be available on May 1st to requst attendance for the 2014-2015 school year.  If you filled one out for this year, you must fill a new one out for next year as well.  It is only good for one year at a time.

Please know, these forms for the next school year will be available on May 1st, 2014.  We will accept them beginning on that date of May 1st.  They will be approved according to the date received until we reach our grade-level caps which are as follows:

Kindergarten-22 per class

1st grade- 22 per class

2nd grade-22 per class

3rd grade- 26 per class

4th grade- 26 per class

5th grade- 26 per class

We will have registration for Kindergarten on May 28th.  Registration for grades 1-5 will be August 13th.  Final approval for Hucrest attendance will be after August 13th when we have class sizes established.  Tentative approval will be given in June for those classrooms where it appears the numbers are well below the "cap"established.

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Durham School Bus Services has released the following note for all families with bus-riding students:

 

Parent's responsibility at the bus stop:

It is not a policy to require parents to be at a bus stop for a student to be dropped off.

 

But it is a concern for both the District and the Bus Drivers as 'what to do' when there is no one present?  Not all kindergartener's or first graders know which house is theirs when they step off a big yellow bus, especially if your house is still another block from where the bus stops in your neighborhood.

 

As a parent, your responibility is to make sure your child knows what to do in the event that you are not there meeting with them at the bus stop.  Practice with them which way they would walk from where the bus drops them off in the afternoon to where you live.

*****FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS****

MORNING DROP-OFF:

Students may not be on campus until 8:30 AM.  NO EARLIER.  All students arriving at this time need to head to the Multipurpose Room/Cafeteria.  During this time, students may eat breakfast. Students will need to sit with their grade level until excused to classrooms at 8:50AM. 

AFTER SCHOOL PICK-UP:

If you are picking up your student(s) after school, please plan to pick-up on NW Moore Ave. in order to prevent congestion.  If you are on foot (or out of your car) please wait at the Flagpole in front of the School's main doors.  These little steps will help to ensure that all of our students stay safe by helping with after school confusion and high traffic.
