HCES Car Rider Update: AM Car Rider Line Adjustment: In attempt to continue to improve our car rider line we are going to make a couple of adjustments. We are going to try double lane drop off starting tomorrow morning. We ask those that are in the front to for two line under the overhang in front of the front doors. Pull up to the second cross walk. When it is time to enter the building, we will have one staff member at the front of the line and one staff member about 5 cars back. We will let those 10 cars unload and then move the to lanes up to unload the next bunch. To help ensure that this moves quickly, please make sure your child(ren) are packed up and ready to exit. Older students may exit the vehicles on their own. Please do not unload if you are in the curve. PM Car Rider Adjustments: When you come in for the afternoon car riders, please pull down the driveway that brings you to the front of the building. We ask that you pull all the way up in front of the front door. Go ahead and form 4 lanes like we have been doing the past 4 days. Stop at the second crosswalk near the front door. Once the car rider line is back to Pea Ridge, we ask that anyone sitting on Pea Ridge go up to the Bus Barn and continue the line up there. Once we start dismissal, we will move those at the Bus Barn back down to join the line. This will allow our buses to get through and get ready to pick up all bus riders. We greatly appreciate your patience as we work through our growing pains!
HCES Families, We hope that everyone had a nice weekend and is ready to start our first full week of school. Just wanted to give you a gentle reminder that students will be walking in on there own tomorrow morning. Parents will not be allowed to walk children to classes. We have many staff members throughout the building to help students get to class. We ask that all car riders drive through the car rider line. Please do not park in the parking lot and let students run across the car rider line. This is very dangerous and we want to ensure the safety of everyone. Thank you!

HCES Families, We had a great first day and can't wait to see everyone back tomorrow! We did have a rocky dismissal and are working to making it smoother. Car riders- please come as close to 2:45pm as you can. If your child is typically a bus rider, it may be a good idea to go ahead put them on the bus starting tomorrow. This will help with the traffic. Due to the earlier dismissal time, students cannot be checked out after 2:00pm. Transportation changes need to be made by 1:30pm. Thank you!
HCES Families: We are looking forward to seeing all our students tomorrow morning! We have a few reminders as you prepare for the first day. Our school hours have changed.

Buses will start at the elementary school and then proceed to the high and middle school. Their drop off times should not change. If you have students in PK-3rd, please meet your child at the bus stop. Parents are allowed to walk children in the first three days. Beginning Monday, parents will not be allowed to walk children in. We also ask that all car riders come through the car rider line. Please do not park and walk them across the lanes. This is for the safety of all. Finally, after school begins on Monday, August 9th. If you have not registered or completed your weekly registration, you may do so online. Please visit the school website. We will see everyone tomorrow!

HCES Families if you completed a form but didn’t receive a “ thank you message “ at the end and a confirmation email, then your form was not submitted. If you keep seeing “review answers”then you have missed a mandatory field and never actually submitted the form. Thank you again for your patience!
HCES Families, First, thank you for your patience as we work through the kinks with our online registration process. We have a couple of pieces that we want to clear up. First, it does not matter which school webpage you go to to access the registration links. Once you are in and completing the forms, you will be able to add all of your children no matter which schools they are attending. You only have to complete the registration forms one time for your family. Second, Pre K students are required to complete these registration forms in addition to the Pre K specific forms that you have already completed. Last, if you are applying for the After School Program (ASP), please make sure you complete the ASP Registration(this will only be done one time) and then complete the ASP Weekly Registration to indicate the days your child will be attending ASP. Again, thank you for your patience. Continue to reach out if you have further questions.
One more important announcement for HCES families. Please visit our school's webpage to register for the After School Program that will begin on August 9th.
HCES Families, Please visit our school's webpage to find the links to our registration forms for returning students and students who are new to Heard County.
YEARBOOKS! Come get some yearbooks! We have some yearbooks that we are giving away. These yearbooks range from 1987 to 2019. They are a first come first serve basis. No yearbooks will be held for anyone. You can stop by the elementary school between 8:00am & 3:30pm to pick up these yearbooks. They are located in the front lobby of the school. Come in the first set of doors and they will be located on a cart by the bench. Again, this is a first come, first serve basis. When they are gone, they are gone. We do have some 2019-2020 for $20 and 2020-2021 for $30. For these two years, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase these books. We will sell these until we run out.
