HE-HO Handbook 14-15

This booklet has been prepared as a resource for parents in the Henking/Hoffman schools. It is our hope that the routines and procedures outlined in this handbook will be helpful throughout the year as questions arise.

Parent Volunteer Bus Riders are Needed!

Does your child take the bus? If so, we are looking for a few parent volunteer bus riders who would be willing to drive to Henking, board a bus at dismissal time (11:25am for morning kindergarten) or 3:30pm (all school dismissal time). We need volunteers for Tuesday, August 26 through Friday, August 29. You will be there to provide support for our students and to assist the bus driver. This is very valuable for a smooth bus ride home for all of our students. The bus driver will return you to Henking when the route is completed. If you are able to volunteer for one or more of the days that is much appreciated. Please call the Henking office at 998-5035 and let us know your availability. Please note: no toddlers or babies are allowed on the buses.

Walk in Day - New Student Meet & Greet

Come to Henking School on Thursday, August 14. The school will be open at 9:30-11:30am and 5:00-6:30pm. This is the day to pick up your child’s class list, receive bus route information, pick up pre-ordered school supplies from our Henking/Hoffman PTA, obtain lunch information, and deposit money for your child’s lunch account, if applicable. If you are unable to come to school on that day, you are welcome any day after August 14, or you may have a friend pick up your packet. 

New students (not kindergarteners) and parents please come at 4:30pm for an informal session about your upcoming year at Henking.
