It was an amazing week of classes having all our students on campus for a full-week of learning at Hedenkamp! We have many exciting events and meeting happening in the month of August, including our annual APEX fun run! Be sure you are following our blog to receive all the updates in your inbox. We are looking forward to another wonderful week with our Huskies!
Meet our School Counselor
Our part-time school counselor, Jellyanne Biocarles, has returned for the new school year. We are so fortunate to have her on our team and support our students again this year. Please contact Ms. Jelly Anne if you would like counseling services or would like to continue counseling services for your child/children for the 2022-2023 school year. There are forms that needs to be signed yearly. You can contact her by emailing her at email@example.com to receive all the necessary information.
As you may have noticed an influx of courtesy COVID notices from Hedenkamp, the latest strand of the virus is on the rise again. Please screen your child for Covid-19 symptoms each day before school and when in doubt, keep your child home. If your child tests positive, please use the link below to report the positive case, the district will then reach out to for you guidance on next steps.

If your child has any pre-existing conditions, including those with Covid-like symptoms (e.g. allergies, asthma), please provide documentation from the doctor so that we can have it on file. This will help prevent your child from being sent home if they have symptoms from a chronic condition.
COVID Weekly Testing at Hedenkamp
As the 2022/2023 school year has launched, we remain committed to offering a safe and healthy environment to our students and staff. We believe the safest approach to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring our schools remain open is through testing.
Last school year, we were able to partner with Covid Clinic to bring COVID-19 testing to all of our schools. We are excited to let you know that weekly testing will continue this year. You should of received an email from Campus Clinic (firstname.lastname@example.org) on Friday, July 22nd, inviting you to register for COVID-19 testing and any of our other services. The email includes step-by-step registration instructions, contact information if you have any questions, and an introduction by Thomas Shaffer, President of Campus Clinic. If you registered your child last year, you will need to complete a new registration form for testing for the new school year.
Weekly testing at Hedenkamp will continue to occur every Monday. It’s quick and convenient, and one of our best tools for combatting the virus. If you cannot locate the email, or need help registering your child for weekly testing, please contact email@example.com.
Complete Residency Verification Required
We still have many families who have not completed residency verification for the 2022-23 school year. All paperwork needs to be completed as soon as possible to ensure your child continues to be enrolled at Hedenkamp. An email went out last week to all families with incomplete residency verification. You should have also received a “Snap Code” via email for each of your children that attend Hedenkamp. If you have not completed this or did not receive the email, contact the school office between 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, or call us at 619-397-5828.
Parent Leaders NEEDED!
We are so excited for parents to return to campus to volunteer! One of the ways you can support your child and our school is to nominate yourself to be on our School Site Council (SSC), you can also nominate a parent/community member to be a part of SSC. We meet once a month, on Thursdays, from 3:30-4:30 pm. The role of the SSC is to develop, approve, and monitor the Single Plan for Student Achievement and provide input on the school’s budget. Our Hedenkamp School Site Council (SSC) is seeking nominations for 4 parent members. For more information and the SSC Nomination Form, click here. We would love to have you join us!

Volunteers will be welcomed on campus starting this week. Please contact your child’s teacher if you are interested in volunteering at school. The State Public Health Officer Order of August 11, 2021 requires that all K-12 workers, including volunteers and contractors, provide proof of full vaccination (completion of the initial vaccination series) or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing. Volunteers also need proof of a TB within the last 4 years, current ID, and fingerprinting (if planning to volunteer more than 2 days a week).
Please visit CVESD Wellness Policy to learn more about our District Wellness Policy. Please help us enforce this wellness policy by ensuring your child only has water to drink in class and milk/water/100% juice in their lunchbox. Thank you for refraining from sending treats such as candy, large bags of chips (snack size with a balanced meal are ok) or large portions of cookies (snack size with a balanced meal are ok). Please know that no food will be taken away from your child, but they may be asked to put item away until after-school. Thank you for your support.
