Last Week of School News

The last week of school is a very exciting week at Hickory Point

Monday, May 28 - NO SCHOOL

Tuesday, May 29
The second graders will have their end of the year party sponsored by PTA on Tuesday, May 29. We will be outside for lunch, please be sure to send a towel for our picnic lunch. With the sun making longer appearances throughout the day sunscreen is highly recommended.

Friday, June 1
Hickory Point Field Day will be FRIDAY, JUNE 1!! Students will be outside for approximately 3 hours during the day. In order for the day to run smoothly, we ask that you assist us in the following ways:

  • Send a “brown bag” disposable lunch. This is preferred so everything can be thrown out. Please include a disposable drink (recyclable plastic water bottle, juice box, etc). We will have milk available for the children. We will be having a picnic lunch so please be sure to send a towel or blanket.

  • Send your child with a hat and light jacket (with his/her name in both). This will help protect your child from the sun or possibly the cold. We all know how quickly Chicago weather can change!
  • Apply sunscreen!! It is highly recommended that you apply sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 50, to your child before school that day. If you feel your child needs to have sunscreen applied during the day we will be using the following guidelines;

                      Children may ONLY bring roll-on or solid tube type sunscreen.
                      Please DO NOT send lotion or spray sunscreens with your child.
                      Staff will not be expected to apply sunscreen to the children.
                      Due to allergy issues children will not be allowed to share sunscreen.

Please be sure to send your child prepared for the day. It is a very fun-filled day and we do not want students having unneeded worries.
