Dear Hidden Lake Families,
Welcome back to school! We are all very excited to see everyone, and our teachers and staff are already working very hard with your students.
At Hidden Lake we use The Discovery Program for behavior expectations and interventions. The Discovery Program allows all students to contribute to a positive school culture and climate and a safe school environment for learning and building relationships with their peers. In addition, it is important to review classroom and school rules and expectations with your student to be able to support them at home. To do this you may access the Students Rights and Responsibilities as well as our Student/Parent Handbook located on the home page of our website.
School attendance is very important. Coming to school on time, every day, is the best way to make sure that your student can graduate and is prepared for the future. Employers state that making it to work and on time, every day is the number one job skill they look for. Let’s think about this, if a student is tardy five minutes every day, that is a total of 15 hours of missed school in one school year! We appreciate your efforts to ensure your child is here on time.
When scheduling a medical or dental appointment for your child, be sure to schedule the appointment outside of the school day. If your child is ill, please call the school right away. For most students, each day starts at 8:40 AM and we begin calling parents of tardy students at that time. Breakfast is served at 8:00 AM, with plenty of time for students to eat and make it to class.
I am very excited to be learning at Hidden Lake with your students this year! Please take a moment to introduce yourself to me when you see me on campus. I appreciate all of your help in making sure that we give your student the best possible chance to succeed in school.
James Steward, Principal
