  • Student Absence and 

    Leaving Early

    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.

    We are noticing many parents showing up at 3:00pm to pick up their child early. Our school day does not get over until 3:25 Kindergarten and 3:30 1st through 6th, with a lot of learning still happening right up until the dismissal bell. If you could contact the office first thing in the morning so the classroom teacher can plan for the early dismissal, that would be very helpful and appreciated. It will avoid having so many classroom interruptions. Thank you!

  • Playground Supervision

    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.

  • New Phones

    Houghtaling Elementary School has received new phones! We are very excited and pleased with the upgrade. At this time, we are asking you for your patience as we learn our new system. Please help us by making sure to communicate with your child in the morning what they are supposed to do after school. If there is a change please call the office by lunchtime, or 2:30 at the latest. It gets very hectic in the office with the phones about 2:30 and any communication we can get before that is extremely helpful. One special note to parents - please do not leave after school information on our voicemail. Please call back until you reach an actual human. This ensures no child will get left behind.
