Still Needing 65 More Cafeteria Volunteers!
With a smaller student body next year, it's more important than ever that everyone pitch in. We need EVERY family to take at least one shift per month in the cafeteria. Husbands and wives can share a shift, if need be, and even grandparents can help out! It's a fun and rewarding way to spend 2 hours a month. Thank you to so many of you who have already signed up. Please be sure your friends have also!

Everyone who signs up will need to have a background check performed by the district, so be sure to tell us if someone in your family will be sharing a shift with you.

Click  here  to sign up. Email Lyndal Greth with questions!
Our committees still need your help!
We may all be stuck at home, but planning is still underway. Our committees need your help! Find a spot to share your talents and meet some new people (when we are all allowed out of our homes again!). If you're interested in joining a committee, please contact the people listed below:






Be Sure to Complete the Safe Routes to School Survey
Current HPISD families have been asked to complete a survey to help determine the best locations for crossing guards next year. You should have received an email with the link from your current school. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete, and the deadline is March 31.

Please answer this survey in light of your CURRENT route to school THIS year. This data will then serve as a baseline for evaluating routes to school next year.
Bravo from the Bulldogs!
Thank you to all of our chairpersons who came to turnover meetings last week to learn about their jobs. Thanks to VSP Chair Cassie Carnahan, Cafeteria Finance Officer Mary Margaret Neff, Cafeteria Volunteer Chair Lyndal Greth, Cafeteria Volunteer Elect Leslie Singleton , and Preschool Association President Beth Smith , to name a few!

A huge thank you to Hyer's and UP's PTA leadership and many chairpersons for welcoming us into their turnover meetings and sharing a wealth of helpful information. The community spirit in HPISD is truly one of a kind!

Bravo team!
