Message from the Principal
Lacey Moser

Dear Hart Families,

We were sure sad the weather didn't participate with our balloon launch on Friday.  We have rescheduled for Wednesday, September 12, weather permitting.  I will send out a principal message the evening before to confirm the launch.

Have a great weekend and don't forget that picture day is on Tuesday! 

With a Full HeART,
Lacey Moser

The PowerSchool Portal is open for you to complete the online enrollment student forms. Please take a few minutes to update your contact information, emergency contacts, authorized pick, FERPA, SCOC, Student Handbook, etc.  

PLEASE NOTE: Regarding the Release of Directory Information for School Use: In order for your child's picture to appear in the yearbook, you should answer "Yes". 

We are currently seeing a lot of allergy related illnesses, some strep, and another virus that seems to be causing predominately stomach ache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headache.
Please remember, if your little ones have had diarrhea, fever greater than 100 (without medications), or vomiting they must be out of school for a full 24 hours so that we can help keep protect others.

There are a handful of our students that are still missing appropriate documentation of immunizations per Texas State Regulations. Please get these to the school nurse, Allison Wright, ASAP so that your child can continue attending school. If required immunization documentation is not received (or process of series has not started if full series is required) we may have to delay school attendance until we have appropriate documentation. Please call me (Nurse Alli) with any questions, 469-742-8156. Thank You!

Thank you for your cooperation!
