ATTENDANCE REMINDERS -
Some attendance reminders for students:
1. Students who are being dismissed during the day need to bring a note to the main office first thing in the morning to get a dismissal slip.
2. Students who are feeling ill during the day need to be dismissed through the nurse's office if they feel they need to leave. They should call home from the nurse's office to speak with parents/guardians.
3. Students who need to miss school for medical appointments (or other appointments that cannot be made outside of school hours) need to bring documentation of the appointment signed by a medical professional, court official, etc. Students are expected to attend school before or after appointment times. An entire day of school is not excused for medical appointments, court appointments, drivers tests, etc. unless it's indicated as being necessary on the written notice by an official.
4. Students need to bring bus notes to the main office first thing in the morning.
5. Students who have planned absences such as college trips or family vacations must bring in written notice to the main office in advance of the absences (about a week before, if possible).
6. Students who miss more than 20 minutes of class (10 minutes for 40 minute classes) are marked absent. If proper documentation is received, the absence will be marked as excused. Please contact the main office with any questions.
OTHER SCHOOLS - Students are not allowed to go to the other schools in our district after HA is dismissed as those schools are still in session - this includes the playgrounds. Most other schools are dismissed at 3:05, but traffic doesn't clear until around 3:15.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD -
Join us on Monday October 30th at 7pm for Classic Repertory Company’s production of To Kill a Mockingbird in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door. Doors open at 6:30. Show begins at 7pm. This show is open to the public.
Classic Repertory Company (CRC) aims to provide innovative productions that are educational and artistically compelling. Their minimalist adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel puts the relationships between the characters front and center. With a cast of seven young actors taking on multiple roles, this production takes to heart Atticus’ advice to “walk around in someone else’s shoes”. How does the audience’s perception change when witnessing the same actor take on multiple characters with opposing views on racial inequality, gender roles, family values and the basic questions of right and wrong? Classic Repertory Company’s production of To Kill a Mockingbird runs 90 minutes, and is recommended for children ages 10 and up.
