 This week’s “Students of the Week” are 3rd graders, Qatoure Chainey-Alston, and King Rolls and 2nd grader Evan Graves. Officer Clayton and his friends presented this week’s “Students of the Week” with certificates for their hard work and dedication while homeschooling. (Week of December 28th)
HTPD are visiting our students nominated by their teachers to celebrate their hard work and dedication during distance learning.  Students were nominated shortly before break and then placed into a randomizer to choose 1 boy and 1 girl from each grade level, 2nd - 5th.  We had over 150 nominees.  HTPD visited the first 3 students over the break and the rest will be visited over the next few weeks.

  • All preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students must be met at the bus stop by a person who will be taking responsibility for that student as they depart the bus in the afternoon.
  • Any person who will be taking responsibility for the student must be age 12 or older.
  • The parent/guardian of any student in grades three through eight who rides a special needs van may request that their student not be dropped off without a responsible person meeting them by contacting the Transportation Department
