When the afternoon dismissal bell rings, all students need to go home. Our playground is not supervised after 3:30pm. If you choose to allow your child to stay and play after school, you are doing so knowing that there will not be school district supervision.
First Student Bus Co is requesting that all students with any bus route or stop changes need to hand a transportation note to the bus driver. This means parents must contact the school office before 2:00pm to have the note written. No note = no change in stops Thank you for your help in this incredibly huge safety issue.
Student Absence and
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!
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.
The Students of the Week were Erlinda Volpi, Vianca Zulueta, David McCaskill, Violet Williams, Leo James

We have 2 big requests...
PLEASE do not park in the upper lot by the flag pole - it is marked with yellow cross hatch lines. This is an access aisle used for our delivery trucks for mail, freight and lunches.
Many times parents are visiting to quickly drop something off but it creates a big problem for our delivery trucks who come throughout the day. This is their parking area and many times it is blocked by a vehicle. There is extra parking now at the end of the upper parking lot down by the Kindergarten doors, and all along the street on Baranof Avenue.
PLEASE do not park in the HANDICAP parking by the office, unless you are licensed to do so. By all means if you are licensed to use the handicap parking there are two available for your use. We are obligated to contact the Police Department if there is a car parked in a handicap spot without a handicap sticker visible. It is a $250.00 fine and the Ketchikan Police Department will ticket you.
Thank You Houghtaling Parents for helping our school day run smoothly!
