Just a quick reminder about visiting school. Please be sure to follow our policy so disruptions are kept to a minimum.
State Statue 18-9-109 REQUIRES ALL VISITORS and VOLUNTEERS to check in at the main office. Please address all concerns at the office window. You will receive a “VISITOR” OR “VOLUNTEER” sticker badge to wear while you are in the school.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO CLASSROOMS WITHOUT CHECKING IN AT THE FRONT WINDOW. If you want to visit the classroom or speak with the teacher, please call to make an appointment. This includes before and after school. Teachers have a very limited time to plan and prepare for instruction. Dropping in can be disruptive.
Students other than currently enrolled at Hulstrom K-8 are not allowed to visit classrooms. THIS IS FOR THE SECURITY OF ALL CHILDREN IN OUR SCHOOL.
Classroom parent volunteers (who volunteer on a weekly basis) will be asked to attend a one-time volunteer orientation provided through PTA. This would need to be completed before actually volunteering in the classroom.
-The circle lane is now a ONE LANE “Hug & Go” only. When you pull into the “Hug & Go” you may not park in the lane for any amount of time.
Another reminder regarding the "Hug & Go" lane.
- Parents may not get out of the car at any time while in the “Hug & GO” lane. Only your child may open the car door closest to the school.
- When you pull into the "Hug & Go" lane, you must pull all the way forward toward the last cone even if your child is a middle school student. DO NOT stop for convenience; the flow must keep moving from north to south. However, if traffic is stopped, feel free to let your child out of the car. You do not need to wait until you get near the south side of the "Hug & Go" to let your child out.
- If you have to park to help your child with projects, etc, you must park in a legal parking spot in the parking lot, or on the street, and use the crosswalk.
We will have supervision along the Hug & Go lane, and on the playground, assisting your child and helping him or her to class.
In the afternoon, you are welcome to wait in your car in the Hug & Go lane. However, you MAY NOT leave your car. If you need to leave your car, you need to park in a legal parking space, or on the street. And, just like in the morning, please continue to pull forward if there is room.
If you choose to park on Wyco Drive or our side streets:
-Do not J-walk. This is extremely poor modeling for your child, a safety issue, and against the law. Please use the Cross-Walk on Wyco Drive or 115th.
- Please park legally. This includes in our school parking lot.
- Do not turn around in the neighbor’s driveway.
If you have relatives picking up your child, please be sure they understand these statements. It is up to us, as adults, to model safety and kindness.
- Do not block driveways or park in red zones.
Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to the Hulstrom Staff and students.
Inclement Weather: On bad weather days students will enter the front of the building.
Students will congregate at the foyer (Elementary at the south entrance, Middle School at the north) and at 7:40 AM, we will allow students to enter until the bell rings at 7:45. We have designated areas inside the building where kids are to be until their classroom teacher picks them up or brings them to the classroom. At the end of school, we will dismiss the same way so parents know where to meet students. Please look for our Hulstrom banners on inclement weather days. These banners will help you know if students will enter through the classroom doors or the front doors.
Remember, inclement weather is defined as colder than 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and or raining and snowing.
If you have any questions, please call 720-972-5400.
