August/September 2019

Hudtloff Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year. To get ready, in August Hudtloff staff attended professional development with a focus on creating/fostering a Culturally Responsive Classroom Communities. Our goal is to eliminate the opportunity gap and increase student engagement.

Thank you to the new families & incoming 6th graders who attended Hudtloff’s before school orientation. Attending the orientation will support a smooth start to the new school year.

The new school year starts on Wednesday, August 28th with doors opening at 8AM. 6th Graders will start their day in the gym for a Welcome to Hudtloff Assembly and meet their advisory teachers. 7th and 8th graders will start their day in advisory class. Students will locate their advisory class on locator lists posted in the common areas of the building. Staff will support students in finding their advisory class location.

Students will spend the first three days of school attending Hurricane 101. During this time, students will stay with their advisor for 2.5 hours. This time will be spent creating relationships, reviewing the 1st Day Packet, attending an Expectation Assembly, and more. Families please return the Signature Form in the 1st Day Packet on September 4, 2019. This Signature Form needs to signed and returned in order for your student to attend afterschool events: tutoring, dances, clubs, sports events, and night events.

Hudtloff is focused on the safety of all students. Please note that the main doors open 45 minutes prior to the start of the school day. Please review the Main/Guidance Office Hours Listed Below:

  • Hudtloff Main/Guidance Office Hours During Regular School Day: 8AM to 4PM

Hudtloff is focused on ensure all students are successful in their learning. Class time is very important to achieving this goal. Please support your student by scheduling appointments outside of the school day. Please note that students will not be called out of class in the last 15 minutes of the school day without prior arrangement. Students must bring a note to the main office at the start of the school day in order to be released in the last 15 minutes of the school day. This is to support academic time and decrease disruption to the classroom. Thank you in advance for supporting the learning environment.

Your student needs to bring the note to the main office to get approval. Main office will call you to verify, and an admin will sign. This needs to be done in the morning or at lunch.
