Dear Hulstrom Families,
We are excited for the 2014-15 school year, including our full roll out of Bring Your Own Device. We wish to be sensitive to our families so you all understand our willingness to work with you regarding the expense of providing a personal electronic device and school supplies for your child or children.
During the 2013-14 school year several Hulstrom teachers piloted the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. Students in the pilot phase of this implementation were able to bring their own mobile technology devices to school for use in their classes, and Adams Twelve Five Star Schools supported an incredible technology upgrade at Hulstrom including a high-level filtered Internet connection.
Our goal for 2014-15 is for every student to participate in the 1:1 BYOD program with a personal device. During the pilot, we enjoyed many successes, but also learned the difficulties associated with having several different devices within a classroom. As a result, we recommend, the following devices for the 2014-2015 school year: iPads for K-2 nd and Chromebooks (and/or laptops) for grades 3-8. For more information on what to buy please see the BYOD page.
We prefer students bring these recommended devices. If you do not have one of these, we will have technology or alternative options available for students. Our teachers have been trained to support these devices, and maximize their impact on your student’s education. If you simply cannot afford a device, please contact Mr. Isenhour at 720-972-5406.
We encourage you to learn more about Hulstrom’s BYOD program by checking out the BYOD link on the Hulstrom web site. This link includes suggested Chromebook models. This link will also have a FAQ section and a detailed history of the 21st Century and BYOD initiative.
Hulstrom K-8 VISITORS and VOLUNTEERS
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 wish 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 and 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.
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.
