Secure Campus

Good Evening,

As you probably know, our school was asked by the Chula Vista Police Department to implement a secure campus protocol earlier today. Students and staff remained indoors securely for the duration of the secure campus.  We were asked to implement the procedure at 2:13 pm and were notified by the CVPD that we could lift the secure campus at approximately 2:55 pm.  There was no threat to our school or students.  We were placed on secure campus as a precautionary measure due to police activity nearby.  The police were responding to an altercation near our school and placed us on secure campus in order to ensure student safety.  Our students were in the classrooms with their teachers for the duration of the secure campus situation. All students were safe and accounted for.  We communicated on Class Dojo and Twitter regarding the situation.  Student safety is a priority and we will always work diligently to ensure all our Huskies are safe and secure at Hedenkamp. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email us.

Thank you,

Mrs. Mazeau and Mr. DeVore

Spring Student-Led Conferences (K-8)

Spring Conferences

Our Spring Parent Teacher Conferences begin Thursday, March 14 and end Thursday, March 22.  Please make every effort to attend the scheduled conference to discuss your child’s progress.  Our teachers and students will share very important information and you will have an  opportunity to ask questions about your child’s progress this school year.

PARKING AND TRAFFIC REMINDERS

We want to remind everyone of the importance of safety during pick up and drop off at Hedenkamp.  Please continue to drive slowly and be mindful in the school zone and our parking lot.  Please arrive early if you would like to park in the lot.  Because parking is limited, we recommend that you take advantage of our drop off and pick up zones.  ThereTraffic Signs are  currently two main areas.  They are: main parking lot and Tabor Court. If you arrive between 8:25 and 8:35 and use one of the drop off areas, drop off is quick and easy. Please encourage your students to wait in one of the two areas after school to be picked up as well.  The line moves quickly and most, if not all students are safely picked up by 3:40 p.m.  Both Mr. DeVore and Mrs. Mazeau will continue to  monitor the drop off and pick up areas.

To help facilitate the process, we ask all vehicles to continue to move forward in the drop off and pick up areas.  This allows more vehicles into the area, expediting the drop off and pick up.  Cars should never park in any of the drop off pick up zones or in the red areas. Our wonderful safety patrol will share reminders with all of you, please be respectful and follow their instructions.  We thank everyone in advance for your patience and cooperation.

PTA Meeting

There will be a PTA meeting on Wednesday, March 6th at 5:30 PM in the Hedenkamp Library. We will be voting on the PTA board as well as discuss upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you there.
