Pick Up Procedures

dropoffsignAs you know, we are very large school with over 1030 students! We love having such a large, vibrant school community!Having a large number of students means drop off and dismissal time can get very busy.  Please remember if you use any of our three pick up zones, you need to stay in your car and continue to pull forward at all times.  Please never leave your vehicle unattended in the yellow zones.  Also, please steer clear of all red zones, you will get ticketed if you stop there.  Please be sure your child knows where they should wait for you at dismissal. Thank you for your patience and cooperation at drop off and dismissal time.

GATE 2017 -2018

We want to welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 GATE Program.  We first want to thank everyone for their support last year.  We had many great class offerings that were taught by our parents and alumni.  We strongly believe our students not only enjoyed the classes, but learned skills that will help them become successful students and citizens.

The Summer Quarter of GATE Enrichment will begin Wednesday, August 9 @ 3:30 p.m.  As last year, the GATE classes will be one hour in length.  If you are interested in teaching a GATE class this year, please email Gina Mazeau (gina.mazeau@cvesd.org) or Ray DeVore (ray.devore@cvesd.org) as soon as possible.

Our GATE Parent Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 2 @ 5:00 p.m.  All parents of our 4th through 6th grade GATE students are encouraged to attend to learn more about GATE at Hedenkamp!

PARKING, DROP OFF AND PICK UP

dropoffsignAll of us at Hedenkamp want to thank our families and community members for their patience and understanding as we try to accommodate the many vehicles that arrive each morning and afternoon.

We strongly recommend that all families begin to use the drop off and pick up areas we have established around the school.  They are:  Tabor Court, Kindergarten Loop and the Main Parking Lot. All drivers should remain in their vehicles in the pick up drop off are IMG_0493and continue to pull as far forward as possible. Although it may take a few minutes to move through the line, most if not all of the students are picked up by 3:25 p.m.

We also encourage families to walk, scooter, bike or carpool to school. As a school of over 1030 students, it helps if we can reduce the number of cars driving to campus daily.

Husky Hustle

We are excited to begin our Husky Hustle on Monday. July 24 at 8:15 am!  We encourage all students to participate.  It is a great way to get some exercise with your friends before school.  We will pass out a Popsicle stick this week to all runners, volunteers will mark the laps you run on the Popsicle stick this week.  We will begin using our scanning system to track laps next week.  If you are on campus between 8:15 and 8:35, you should join us for the Husky Hustle! We can’t wait to see you there!

PARKING, DROP OFF AND PICK UP

All of us at Hedenkamp want to thank our families and community members for their patience and understanding as we try to accommodate the many vehicles that arrive each morning and afternoon.

dropoffsignThe last day that we will use the playground as overflow parking will be Friday, July 28.  As we settle in to the new school year, many of our teachers will be using the playground for the required physical education period.  As more and more students are on the black top, it is impossible to accommodate the many cars.  We will continue to open the playground for parking on Fridays as well as any special events.  Again, thank you for your understanding.

We realize this may be difficult, however we strongly recommend that families begin to use the drop off and pick up areas we have established around the IMG_0493school.  They are:  Tabor Court, Kindergarten Loop and the Main Parking Lot. Although it may take a few minutes to move through the line, most if not all of the students are picked up by 3:25 p.m.

We also encourage families to walk, scooter, bike or carpool to school. As a school of over 1050 students, it helps if we can reduce the number of cars driving to campus daily.

Finally, we would especially encourage the parents of our 3rd-6th grade students to use the drop off and pick up areas and allow the parents of our younger students to park.

PTA MOVIE NIGHT

imagesPlease be sure to join us for our first Movie Night of the year. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28.  Bring your lawn chairs, pillows and blankets to help enjoy the evening.  You may bring your own snacks or purchase popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, pizza and drinks from our PTA concession stands. We hope to see you all at our first Husky community event of the year!

PTA Membership Drive

The PTA Membership Drive is off to a great start!.  PTA memberships expire annually, so remember to sign up as a PTA member for the 2017 – 2018 school year.  Parents, students, and staff can join.
