Weekly Message for Our Huskies

Thank you for a Great First Week

Thank you for entrusting us with the gift of your children. They are amazing Huskies! We had a great first week of the school year with them. I hope they were able to reconnect with friends, make new friends, and have fun. We are grateful to have them back at school! Please keep encouraging them to be the amazing Huskies they are!

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.

We strongly recommend that families use the pick up and drop up areas we have established around the school.  They are:  Tabor Court (4th Grade and walkers that live near Taber Ct.), Kindergarten/First Grade Loop and the Main Parking Lot Loop (2nd,3rd, 5th, 6th). Although it may take a few minutes to move through the line, most if not all of the students are dropped off by 8:35 and picked up by 3:30 p.m.  Please remember to always pull forward and never park in the pick up and drop off areas. Also never stop in the red zone. 5th and 6th grade parents may use the bus loop for drop off and pick up if there are no busses in the loop. The busses always have priority, and we ask you to be mindful of that and move when you see them.

We also encourage families to walk, scooter, bike or carpool to school. As a school of over 900 students, it helps if we can reduce the number of cars driving to campus daily.

Please be courteous and safe.  Please keep moving forward and have you child prepared to exit or enter the car quickly and safely.  Please follow the directions of our staff and safety patrol.  Please do not crowd near the gates. Remember, our children watch our example, so please always be safe and respectful.

Finally, we would especially encourage the parents of our 2nd-6th grade students to use the drop off and pick up areas and allow the parents of our younger students to park in the lot

Important Attendance Information

Welcome back Husky parents. With the new school year upon us we would like to remind you of the importance of good attendance.

If your student is going to be absent, please contact our school Health Attendance Specialist Mrs. Giron @ 619.397.5828 ext. 580110 or via email: carla.giron@cvesd.org

If your child is going to be absent for a full or partial day due to medical appointment(s) be sure to submit a doctor’s note the following day.

If your child is going to be tardy due to a medical appointment be sure to have your student submit his/her doctor’s note upon arrival.

If your child is going to be absent due to a sport tournament, the district requires a note from the organization or flyer with the student’s name for it to be excused.

Out of town trips or Vacations are NOT excused absences. If your student is going to be absent for 5 days or more, please contact our Health Attendance Specialist to discuss if any accommodations can be made.

We understand how difficult this past year has been for everyone and for the safety of all our families, if your child is feeling ill, please contact the health office to report the absence, follow Covid-19 protocols and please keep them home. A husky’s education is very important, but their health is what matters most. We look forward to a wonderful 21-22 School year with happy, healthy Huskies.

COVID ~ Decision Tree

Kindergarten Information for Parents

Kinder Students will continue to have a modified schedule this week. They will attend from 8:45 am – 12 pm.

At drop off, kindergarten parents may use the kindergarten drop off loop and leave your child at the kindergarten gate with the supervisor. One adult/older sibling may also come through the kindergarten gate to drop off  your child. We ask that you wear a mask if you come through the gate. Parents that live in the area near Taber Court, may use that gate if they are walking to school. Please never park in any of the loops. A driver must always stay in the car to keep pulling forward to allow space for other cars. If you are walking your child in, you must either walk from your home or park in a parking space in the main lot and walk over. There are no exceptions. At pick up, one adult (no Hedenkamp siblings as they are in class) needs to come through the gate to meet your child at the classroom door.  Please keep a safe distance from other families. You will need to park your car and walk in. You can also walk or bike from home.  Please quickly pick up your child and exit, do not linger on campus. Please do not park in the loops. Thank you for your cooperation!

Visitors and Volunteers

Visitors may come on campus for limited purposes now. We ask that visitors only come to campus if absolutely necessary. Please do not linger on campus, wear a mask, and keep a safe distance from others. Volunteers may begin on August 2nd if they have provided proof of COVID vaccination, TB test results, and sign a volunteer form. You may provide the documentation between the hours of 11:30 and 2:30 pm in the main office. Please wear your mask on campus.

Please Read The Parent Handbook Carefully

Have a wonderful week!

We love having our Huskies Back!

We loved welcoming our Huskies back to school today! Words really can’t express the joy we felt! We were thrilled to see lots of smiles and thumbs up as students were heading home! Thank you for entrusting us with the gift of your children!

We wanted to share a few important reminders:

The drop off window is between 8:15 am and 8:45 am. Please know, if you are driving, you can just use the loops for pick up and drop off from now on, no need to get out of your car. Walkers and Bikers are highly encouraged! Instruction begins at 8:45 every day.

Please help remind your child about their line letter on the blacktop. Students will line up there in the morning, after recess, and lunch.

Our dismissal is staggered tomorrow. Kinder dismisses at 12 pm. 1st through 3rd grade dismisses at 3 pm and 4-6 dismisses at 3:15 pm. Please be sure child and their teacher know the plan after school. Please keep the plan consistent for your child daily. Please know we have supervision at every gate so if you are waiting in traffic, please know we will not leave your children unattended. We know the pick up took a long time today. Everyone likes to come campus on the 1st day! We appreciate your patience. We know it will get better every day! Please know it is smoothest if you either walk, bike, or stay in you car. Please just keep pulling forward and we will be sure to connect you with your child. Also, if you live in the transportation zone, the busses are up and running. Again, please clearly communicate your after school plan with your child and their teacher! Please keep it consistent daily so it becomes routine.

We appreciate your cooperation and support!

We are ready to rock Day 2! Go Huskies!

Hedenkamp Theatrical Ensemble Permission Slip 2021-2022

(For Hedenkamp students in 3rd-6th grades next year)

  • I give my child permission to participate in the Hedenkamp Theatrical Ensemble during the 2021-2022 school year.
  • I understand that they are expected to follow ALL school and classroom rules before, during, and after any and all rehearsals and performances as well as during the school day. Failure to follow these rules will result in removal from the Ensemble.
  • I understand that closed rehearsals will take place every Thursday afternoon from 3:20-5:00pm in the multipurpose room, library, and/or courtyard at Hedenkamp Elementary School. Rehearsals will not be held during school breaks.  On Thursdays that are holidays, there will be a Wednesday rehearsal.  On rehearsal days that are minimum days, rehearsal will be from 2-4pm.
  • I understand that they are responsible for being at rehearsals on time, prepared, and remain present throughout the entirety of each rehearsal. Students will not be excused early for other rehearsals/practices or special events (concerts, sporting events, etc.).  I am also aware that if they miss more than 3 rehearsals (without a valid reason) that they will be removed from Ensemble.
  • I understand that I am responsible for arranging transportation for them to and from each rehearsal and performance and that I am to pick them up promptly at the end of each rehearsal and performance.
  • I understand that the Hedenkamp Theatrical Ensemble will be producing ONE Spring Musical in May and that there will be some performances (live or virtual) that they will be required to attend. Tentative dates for these performances are listed below.
  • I understand that my child will occasionally be pulled from class to attend additional rehearsals as each performance approaches.
  • I understand that a script may be checked out to my child and failure to turn in that script in good condition will mean having to pay for it.
  • I understand that my child will be required to sing, dance, and/or act during all rehearsals and performances. Failure to fully participate during rehearsals/performances will result in removal from the Ensemble.
  • I understand that after students are cast in speaking, singing, and dancing parts, the remainder of the Ensemble members are cast as singers on our risers.  These parts are extremely important.  Without our riser singers we would be unable to have successful shows.  The riser singers are truly the heart of our show and the largest number of roles we have.  If you are NOT interested in being a riser singer, this MAY NOT be the after-school activity for you.

Permission slips must be completed online by TUESDAY 06/15/21 by 3:15pm (NO EXCEPTIONS)

Weekly Message for Our Huskies

Final Week of End of Year Testing

We will continue to administer end of year assessments to all our Huskies to see how they have progressed this year. We will not administer CAASPP assessments this year, but we will administer Local Measures assessments to all Huskies. All students will be assessed in language arts and mathematics. We will use the assessments through Smarty Ants, Achieve 3000 and iReady. If you would like additional information about end of year testing, please review the Testing Power Point we shared at our testing meeting a few weeks ago. Please be sure students get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and are encouraged to do their very best on each test. If you child is testing from home, please do not help them with the assessments. If your child is testing at school, please be sure they bring their headphones to school on testing days. Please review the end of year testing calendar below:

So Exciting! Ensemble is Back!

We’re happy to announce that Hedenkamp Ensemble will be back for the 2021-22 school year!!  Due to the continuing situation, we are implementing a few changes this year. 

  • So that we can adhere to safety guidelines/protocols, a limited number of 3rd-6th grade Ensemble members will be able to participate. 
  • We will have only one show in the spring.
  • Dance, singing, and acting auditions may be virtual via Flipgrid.  After your permission slip has been submitted online, your child will receive an email with information about auditions by the first week of school.
  • While we would love to have an in-person performance, the uncertainty of the pandemic MAY force us to have a virtual show or a show where students perform live to a streaming audience.  We are prepared for all options, but we may not know the outcome until later in the school year.

Online permission slips will be posted on Monday, May 31st.

We are ready to get back to work for another great Ensemble season!

We NEED Your Input

We are always looking for ways to improve at Hedenkamp. We would like to hear from all our parents regarding parental involvement. Please take a few minutes to complete our brief survey. We have only had 7 families respond so far, we need additional families to respond please.

You will be receiving an email that will contain a unique “Snap Code” for each of your children enrolled at Hedenkamp and a link to the website where you will be able to update information for your child and upload your residency for the 21/22 school year. You will only receive and email if you have a valid email on file at Hedenkamp. If your email has recently changed, or if you do not receive emails from the district, please call the office to update your information: 619-397-5828.
