Principal’s Message – October 17, 2017
Dear Hoover families,
I hope your week has started off well. It’s been a good start to the week at Hoover!
Here are some important dates to remember
- Hoover Family Fun Run – October 21 at 10:00 am
- Halloween Parties – October 31
You may have noticed that many of our classrooms have Instagram accounts and more keep joining. This is a great way to stay informed about what is going on in the classroom. Many teachers post pictures and information daily. You can follow my Instagram account at theeyesofthehawk. Here is the link to our webpage listing all the social media accounts at Hoover: Hoover Social Media
Picture Retake Day is Tuesday, October 24th!
Important: For students absent on picture day and those who want to take a new picture.
The preferred method of payment for Lifetouch is online. Students may bring payment on retake day https://my.lifetouch.com/mylifetouch/#/
Picture Day Code: RN037026Q0 – Extra forms/envelopes can be found in the office.
If parents/students received pictures and are unhappy, students need to bring the COMPLETE picture order & envelope with them on retake day. All students will be photographed for class composites and yearbook. PTA volunteers will bring students down to the gym for pictures.
If a student or parent forgot to order, they will be given a slip with information for ordering online. If the online order is placed within 2 days of retake day (10/26), the order will still be delivered with the rest of retakes. If the online order is placed after 10/26, the pictures will be shipped to the student’s home and they will be charged shipping.
Any other questions or concerns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Lifetouch customer service (630) 910-6800.
District 54 launched an online report card at the end of last school year. Everyone who has a parent portal account will be able to see their children’s report cards online by November 21, 2017. All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account but have supplied District 54 with an email address will receive an email during the first week of October with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you do not receive an email but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office. If you are unable to access the parent portal and require a paper copy of your student’s report card, please contact our office.
From your school nurse:
We just wanted to remind you to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits. While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.

Have a great week!
