Parent Weekly Update (12/3/19)

This is Mr. Anglin with your weekly update for Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019.

Happy Holiday Season! 

We appreciate that everyone is ready for the break.  Let’s end the year with a high note, with your child here “All Day, Every Day”

Holmes’ Goals:

One of our goals at Holmes is to have at least 95% of our students attend school everyday.

Last week for Monday and Tuesday before the holiday break we averaged 89% attendance. 

Friendly Reminder...if your student is tardy (Arriving after 7:45 am) please remember to walk them into the office and sign them in.  This will help ensure that their attendance is recorded correctly and they are not marked absent.

Happening At Holmes:

Household Survey Prize - $25 Gift Card! Household Survey If you haven’t already, please complete and return the Household Survey to your child’s teacher for your chance to win a $25 gift card.  Thank you again to everyone who has been able to complete this already! It is appreciated.

The household survey information is very important because it allows Holmes to get funding from the state to support our students' achievement, as well as, provide free breakfast, lunch, and snacks for our students.  

Healthy School Food Pantry Open on Thursdays in December.  Our Food Pantry will now be open every Thursday from 12:30-2:30 pm in December.  The pantry includes dry goods, dairy, meat, produce, and prepared foods at NO COST to Holmes families.   Call Mrs. Huget at 734-221-2109 with any questions.

Updates and Information:

  • Contact Information - Communication with our students’ families is very important.  Please help us ensure that we have your most updated phone and email contact information.  You can contact the main office with any updates as needed at (734-221-2102).
  • Alternative Bus Home - If you would like your child to ride an alternative bus home, please contact the main office at 734-221-2102 before 12 pm.  We have to notify transportation of this request before students can ride. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
  • Alternative Transportation Plans -  If you are planning to do parent pick-up instead of sending your child home on the bus, please contact the main office (734-221-2101) or your child’s teacher prior to 1:45 pm.  This will give us an opportunity to ensure that your change of plans are met.  Thank you for your attention to this matter.
  • If you are experiencing transportation issues please contact our Transportation Department at 734-221-2449, or our main office at 734-221-2101. 

Go Grizzlies!
