    Halloween Parade – Maple Shade Township

     

    Hawk Hollow will be participating in Halloween festivities on Friday, October 29th. We will be hosting a parade in which our Kindergarten through Second grade classrooms will show off their Halloween costumes to our Third through Sixth grade students. Any student who would like to be part of the parade is welcome to join the others. The parade will begin at 1:10 pm outside and Halloween parties will follow. Unfortunately, parents are not allowed in attendance for the party but we WELCOME YOU to come to the playground for our parade!

    There are a few guidelines we would like to share regarding Halloween costumes in an effort to promote a safe and respectful experience for students of all ages. 

    • Students should plan to come to school with their Halloween costumes in their backpacks. 

    • Students will be given an opportunity to change into their costumes prior to the parade. 

    • All costumes should be non-violent and any prop or mask that is thought to be gory, violent, or dangerous should be kept at home. 

    • Please also refrain from using any fake blood and absolutely no weapons are allowed on school property. 

    • Your child can wear make-up to school with their costume however it should be appropriate. Teachers will not have time to apply any make-up for students. 

    • Hawk Hollow personnel reserve the right to alter a student’s costume if they are not appropriate or if they go against the included guidelines. 

    We appreciate your support in making sure that our Halloween festivities are memorable, fun, and safe for all students, staff, and families here at Hawk Hollow. 

    Happy Halloween Everyone!

    SCHOOL BEGINS AT 8:30 A.M. SCHOOL ENDS AT 2:30 P.M.

    Be on time. Doors will open at 8:20 Have a pick-up plan & be on time.

     

    Doors to the building open at 8:20 a.m. All students should be in their classrooms by 8:30 a.m. We ask that you meet this time deadline as we are working hard to secure the building and limit the opening and closing of doors. PLEASE – NO LATE STUDENTS.

    CAR RIDER PROCEDURES: Supervision begins at 8:20.

    Vehicle Procedures for the Morning:

     

    • Enter the furthest parking lot and stay to the right
    • Always pull all the way up to the last cone or furthest point in the line
    • Be sure to stay in line and in your vehicle
    • Students are required to exit the car CURB SIDE only. Staff members will be on duty to assist if children have difficulty with the door.
    • All students will head directly to their assigned doors to enter the building. Please see the map below.

     

    Vehicle Procedures for the Afternoon:

      • Enter the furthest parking lot and stay to the right
      • Always pull all the way up to the last cone or furthest point in the line
      • Be sure to have visible the tag with your child’s number on your rear view mirror. This tells the staff on duty who is authorized to pick up.
      • Students are required to enter the car CURB SIDE only. Staff members will be on duty to support students as needed. Please see the map below.

     

      • NOTE: If your child requires assistance with buckling a seat belt, please allow your child to enter the car and then pull into a parking spot to assist them.


    Car riders will be provided tags just like we have in the past. However, this year we have purchased new tags and will be providing each family with 1 backpack tag per child and 2 car tags per family. If your tags are lost and you require a replacement we will be charging $1 as the tags do cost the school money each year.

     

    DISMISSAL: Students will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. IT IS VITAL that you have a pick-up person ready at 2:30 as we have limited supervision of students after that time. Students will be dismissed through the same door they entered the building.

     

    Changes in Daily Dismissal Schedule - Any changes to student dismissal must be communicated to both the office and the classroom teacher prior to 2:00pm. You can either email the teacher and marywalsh@u-46.org or jessicapaz@u-46.org OR call the front office at 630-540-7676. It is imperative you notify us of any changes so we can get your children to the proper location for dismissal.

    GUIDELINES FOR IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION
     

    GUIDELINES FOR IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION


    SOCIAL DISTANCING: As much as possible, we will work to make sure students and staff maintain social distance. Please practice, at home, what 3-6 feet looks like and we will reinforce that in lessons during the day.

     

    LOCKERS: Lockers will be used during the school day. Students will be assigned lockers so they are 3-6 feet from one another. They will be dismissed appropriately to ensure they remain 3-6 feet apart.


    ID'S: NEW this year....All students will receive a photo ID and lanyard this year. Students are expected to come to school each day wearing their lanyard with their ID. If a lanyard or ID is lost, please notify the office and we will replace it.

     

    BUSING WRISTBAND: All students riding the bus will be given a yellow wristband with their bus number on it. Students are expected to wear this wristband for the first three days of school. If their wristband is damaged or lost, please notify the office so we can replace it.

     

    KINDERGARTEN FAMILIES ONLY: If your child is riding the bus, make sure you have completed the card on the back of their lanyard! You will need to write down who will be meeting your child at the bus stop each day. If the person meeting your child is NOT listed on the card, the driver will not release your child and they will come back to the school. If this card gets lost, reach out to the office for a replacement.

     

    FORGOTTEN ITEMS: If your child has forgotten an item at home, he/she will not be calling home for those items to be brought into school. We will provide materials needed for instruction. We are trying to minimize exposure to staff and students which is our reasoning for eliminating phone calls home.

     

     

    TECHNOLOGY: IPADS AND CHROMEBOOKS SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL DAILY! Please make sure your child chargers their device each night so it can be used in school.

    Lunch will be FREE for all students. Students can use lunchboxes this year!!!

     

    Menus for breakfast and lunch can be found here: https://www.u-46.org/Page/9190

     

     

    Students will have a snack time break at varied times throughout the day. Teachers have the option to host snack time in their classroom, cafe, or bring students outside (weather permitting). The snack break will be scheduled by teachers. Snacks are NOT provided so parents will need to send those items in. Please make sure you are sending in a healthy snack for your child.
