Hickory Point Happenings February 12, 2021

In this edition:

  • Parking lot safety

  • Substitute teachers needed

  • Indoor recess toys

  • Extra face masks and water bottles

  • Important dates

Driving around school grounds

We appreciate your patience at arrival and dismissal with car drop off and pick up. We have over 100 students arriving and leaving school each day in the horseshoe at Hickory Point. Please make sure you are following all of our processes. Cars line up in a single file line from the north. Parents need to remain inside the vehicle. A staff member will assist your child if he/she needs assistance. When parents get out of the car, it is a safety issue. 

Furthermore, please do not try to turn left from Laburnum into the car line. This is not safe. We have students and parents walking and cars trying to go around the vehicles attempting to turn left. We respectfully request you enter the pickup line from north Laburnum.  Thank you! 

Substitute Teachers Needed

District 27 is still in need of substitute teachers for the remainder of the school year. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Theresa Fournier at 

Indoor recess

Please check with your child to make sure they have a small Ziploc bag of toys at school for indoor recess. The cold spell has limited our chances to go outside for recess. 

Extra face masks and water bottles (final)

Please make sure your child has at least two extra masks in his/her backpack. We are noticing students need to replenish their masks. Also, please send a water bottle with your child each day.  We have a water bottle filler, but drinking fountains are currently not being used.  Thank you!
