PTA Wants YOU for Underwriting!

Please take part in the Underwriting campaign......I don't want to see what the Underwriting Chair photoshops me into next.......

No Dogs Allowed at Hyer? Aren't We the Huskies?

Just a reminder to all of our Hyer families that dogs are not allowed on campus during school hours. This is both a city ordinance and policy for all of the district campuses. Being a dog owner myself, I know how a pet can become an integral part of the family and how tempting it is to bring them to school. However, with the safety of all our students in mind, I am asking that dogs not be brought onto school grounds during school hours. This would include walking your dog to school when picking up and dropping off your child. Thank you again for all of your help and support in this matter.

New Security Procedures Start Tomorrow, Aug 28th

Hyer Families,

The district completed the installation of the security doors and
cameras this summer on all campuses. Our new entry procedures will begin
on the 2nd day of school, Tuesday, August 28th. Each elementary school
will have all doors locked at 8:20 a.m., and any parents/guests in the
building after 8:20 will need to come to the office to sign in and
receive a badge. Anyone needing to come in the building after 8:20 will
only be able to enter the building through the front entrance of Hyer
(Caruth side). To request entrance into Hyer after 8:20, push the camera
button located on the right side of the door and wait to be "buzzed in"
by a member of Hyer's office staff. For any students\families needing to
enter with the use of a handicapped ramp after 8:20, the entrance
located on Pickwick will be available to be "buzzed in." Once "buzzed
in" all visitors will need to report to the office to sign in and
receive a visitor's sticker. Finally, all doors will remain locked until
3:30 p.m., and staff members will not be allowed to open any door other
than the front entrance for visitors.

Our goal is to continue to maintain the neighborhood school atmosphere
while also improving the safety of everyone in our facilities. We thank
you in advance for your support with our new security procedures. If you
have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

The first day is finally here!

What a great first day! I want to thank everyone for making this day run so smoothly and for trusting us with your wonderful children. We had such a great turnout last Thursday with Open House and I do believe that had so much to do with us having such a great first day. Going into all of the classrooms today, I could see the excitement in all of their faces.......many told me they could hardly sleep last they should sleep well tonight. I will have first day pictures up soon so look for those and our first podcast of the year is right around the corner.
