from HBS
Hello HBS Families, 
 
I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the end of a fine Monday. There is quite a bit of new information in this memo. Please read and archive for your records.

Resolution: 
 
I am happy to report that today is the first day that Providence buses 60 and 64 will officially run the new routes. I have been assured that the St. Augustine’s stop has been eliminated from both routes. Please call me if you have any continuing concerns whatsoever. I can be reached at the school at 456-8623 or at our emergency number beyond school hours if I am not at the school at 536-2005.
Car Port:
Our new system for parent pick-up will be in effect Monday, September 15.
All families will be receiving 3 colored window signs with their child’s name on it. They will be laminated copies. Upper school (3-5) signs are yellow and lower school (Pk-2) signs are green. Each family will get 2 signs that are yellow or green and one sign that is orange. Orange signs are for individuals who are authorized to pick up your child(ren). Their IDs will be checked if our Teacher Associates are not familiar with them. Please give that orange sign to another individual who is authorized to pick up your child (eg, grandparent, nanny, friend). If you require more than 1 orange sign, let us know and we will produce an extra one for you.
Please be prepared to follow these guidelines as we roll out the new system, which should save time and increase safety:
  • Be courteous.
  • Be aware of children.
  • DISPLAY YOUR STUDENT CARD in your vehicle dash

(only official copies from the office will be accepted)

  • DRIVE SLOWLY! 5 MPH
  • Never leave your car running when you are not in the vehicle.
  • Never park in the driveway during the times of 7:30a.m. to 8:00a.m. OR 1:45a.m. to 2:00p.m.
  • Always take your keys with you when leaving your vehicle.
  • Never leave children unattended in your vehicle.
  • Ensure your child’s seat is attached correctly, according to the specifications of your seat.
  • Always have your child in the back seat, and please buckle your child in.
  • Park in designated areas only.
  • Be prepared to show your ID, or park to come in the office to make sure we know who you are.
  • Please have patience.
Mr. Tiernan, the RIC officer who directs traffic, will allow 5 cars into the carport area at a time. The teacher associate will have already facilitated the identification of who is being picked up by simply reading the student card on the dash of each car. This will help us expedite your child to you safely and efficiently. Then, all 5 cars can drive away pretty much at the same time, allowing 5 more cars to enter.

 

   I’d like to remind families that HBS learners DO have school tomorrow, September 9, Primary Election Day. There WILL be busing for our Providence Students, but there will NOT BE Statewide busing. Projecting into November, there WILL NOT be school at all on November 4, Election Day.
Remember every vote counts!!!
