 Parent Information...
Please read the following:

This is a reminder of our school procedures regarding items being dropped off for students in the main office at Heineman Middle School. 
The main office has two call downs a day
 9am and 1pm

Heineman understands that students may forget homework or school related items and having a parent bring these to school is perfectly fine.  Please understand that we will not interrupt classroom instruction or academic progress for these items to be given to the appropriate student.

Additionally, if a student has called home for a parent to bring an item to school, he/she is always welcome to pick it up during passing periods throughout the day.  The students can also come down during their lunch period to pick up any dropped off items.  Otherwise, the students will be called down at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

If you know your child is going to be absent in advance please contact the office as soon as possible so your child can get a "request for homework absence sheet" 

To request homework if your child is sick please contact the study hall teacher by 9:00 am.

Birthday lunch treats brought to Heineman should be limited to just your child. The large quantities of pizzas, soda, and desserts being brought in during lunch periods are causing an unnecessary disturbance in our cafeteria. Thank you for honoring this request and keeping your child's treat just for him/her to enjoy.

Any questions about field trips please contact
your child's study hall teacher.
