Hickory Point Student Handbook


This elementary student handbook has been prepared through the combined efforts of parents, staff and administration with the intention of providing you and your child(ren) with important information concerning Hickory Point School and District 27. The handbook is designed to serve as a guide for parents and students, so they better understand the policies and procedures designed to assist children’s educational experience. As the need arises during the school year, additional information will either be mailed or sent home with your child(ren). However, the information contained in this handbook should answer most questions you may have. Please carefully review this book with your child(ren) so their rights and responsibilities are understood.
