We have had a wonderful start to friendly reminderour new school year!  Just a few reminders as we get back into our school routines:
  • Car riders–In the morning, please pull straight ahead to Mrs. LaRue on the left end of the building with the round drive.  In the afternoons, you may line up in the bus lane in front of building until 3:00. If you arrive after 3:00, please pull down just like in the mornings.
  • Check your child’s planner each night.  This is a great tool for  parent/teacher communication.  It takes all of us working together!  Initial the planner so the teacher will know you have seen it.
  • If you have questions regarding your child’s homework assignments, please email your child’s teacher. All school emails are as follows: firstname.lastname@hickmank12.org. Click HERE for a list of all CIS teachers.
