Dear Hart Families,

We are looking forward to having many of our Leopards return for On-Campus Learning on September 8th! Join us this Thursday, September 3rd, from 5-6 pm as Dr. Goddard and the Campus Principals answer questions from our community regarding On-Campus Learning! Click here to submit your question for the webinar by 8 pm, Wednesday, September 2nd!  This will be in place of the meeting I had scheduled at 3:00pm on Thursday.

The PowerSchool ParentPortal is now open for you to complete the online Enrollment & Student Information Forms. Please click here to access the Parent Portal. Parents will access the enrollment forms in their PowerSchool Parent Portal - left navigation panel - "Enrollment & Student Forms." Completion of these forms is required every year for every student. Please take a few minutes to update your contact information and other forms.

IMPORTANT!!!!! The last day for medication drop off is, tomorrow, Wednesday, September 2 from 10:00am-12:00pm. Drop off will take place curbside at the front entrance of Hart. See more information below from Nurse Allie.

Many of you have asked how you can best support the Hart and our fabulous staff. I encourage you to join our PTO! I appreciate how hard they have worked to continue some of their great programs for our students virtually as we navigate this school year, including Art Sparks, Dennis Lee Assembly, and our Author's visit. They also do so much to support and love on the entire Hart staff. Be sure to check out the most current PTO information below!

Medication Drop Off

*** IMPORTANT!!!!! The last day for medication drop off is Wednesday, September 2 from 10:00am-12:00pm. Drop off will take place curbside at the front entrance of Hart.***

Medications:
If your student has a prescription or over the counter medication that needs to be kept in the clinic during face to face instruction, there will be a designated time and date to get those dropped off at school.
 
The Medication, Emergency Action Plan (anaphylaxis/allergy), and the Asthma Action Plan forms can all be found here. Some of these forms must be signed by the child's physician as well as the parent, so you will need to fill these out ahead of time.
 
All medications must be in their original packaging (NO ziplock baggies) and not expired. 
 
Prescription medications must have the proper label on the bottle or packaging and will have to be counted with the parent dropping the medication off.

Immunizations:
Please make sure you have provided the school with an up to date immunization form for your children. Please follow up with your child’s health care provider to make sure your child meets public school immunization requirements which can be found here.

My contact email is allison_wright@lovejoyisd.net if you have any further questions.

Thank you!
Yearbook
Please remember to submit your first day of school pictures and district theme day photos to YearbookHart@gmail.com. We love to see all the photos you send in. We will use the photos in the 2020-2021 HES Yearbook. Thank you!
