We met with all children last week and welcomed them to Haverstraw
Elementary for the 2014-2015 school year. In addition to any
letters from your childs classroom teacher, he/she has received
some important notices that require your attention:
Permission to Walk Home form - This form must be completed if you
wish your child to walk home at dismissal. Without this form,
your child will need to be picked up from the attendance
Over the course of the next 10 months, we will be communicating
with you about many different items pertaining to your childs
schooling. This letter intends to itemize a number of
reminders to get the year started properly and smoothly:
We utilize the Connect Ed system to communicate various
announcements via phone calls, emails, and text messages. We
ask that you set up your preferences in the system by logging on
. Log on with your childs ID number and select your
preferences regarding how you wish to receive our announcements. We
recommend that you select all three options; that is, voice calls,
emails, and text messages.
We will also use the email address you provide to send you
pertinent announcements from our HES News account.
Parents dropping off their child should utilize the drop-off lane
on Lincoln Street, as Partition Street will be closed off for bus
Parents who plan to pick-up their child at dismissal daily must
send a letter to the attendance office indicating this arrangement
no later than Wednesday, September 10th.
Regarding the cafeteria program:
The school breakfast program begins at 8:15 a.m. Otherwise
the building opens at 8:27 for all other students.
We encourage families to complete a lunch form to determine whether
their children qualify for free or reduced lunch.
We hope that your familys school year starts smoothly. If we can be
of any help, please contact us in order to assist you with any need
you may have. Thank you for your participation in the
education of your child.
