If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, please contact the school office (907) 225-4128 first thing in the morning. All absences are unexcused until a parent/guardian contacts the office to excuse their student.
For student safety, PLEASE remember that the playground will not have adult supervision until 8:35am. It is very important that students are not dropped off prior to that time. If your child walks to school, please talk to them about this topic so they do not arrive before supervision is available. There will also be no adult supervision on any playgrounds after 3:30pm.
8:45am - 12:45pm
During the month of October, Houghtaling Elementary School students will learn how to recognize, refuse, and report bullying. Our annual Unity Day celebration is October 19. Unity Day is celebrated across the United States. It is an opportunity to unite against bullying, to show those who are being bullied that they are not alone and that we care about them. Join the Houghtaling Community and unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Wear the color orange and/or an orange ribbon!
PLEASE know it is VERY busy in the office at the end of the day. If you have a phone message for your child for after school instruction PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE call the office BEFORE 2:30pm. ALSO - VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE DO NOT leave phone messages on the voicemail for after school notes. Please call back to talk to a human.
For the security of our students and staff, we ask that all visitors enter and exit our building at the front office and wear a visitor sticker in plain sight. This includes being on the playground with your child. We are strictly enforcing this safety measure and ask for your cooperation. Thank You!
