The first day of school will be August 26. (Please read on for Kindergarten opening information.) Students should report to school at the normal time. Our arrival bell rings at 8:20 a.m. and our tardy bell rings at 8:30 a.m. Following attendance and other preliminaries, homeroom teachers will walk students outside for a special gathering at 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot outside Horning Hall, to begin the school year with welcome, blessing and celebration. Families may park in our lot or at Faith Lutheran Church. In case of rain, we will gather in Horning Hall.
Latchkey will be in session beginning on the first day, but please note that kindergarten students attending school only until noon must be picked up at that time. Please call 330-873-1282 and leave a message for Mrs. Weber if you would like to register for Latchkey, or stop by the Latchkey table at Back-to-School Night. If your child attended Latchkey last year and is returning, please send a note on the first day of school indicating your child’s Latchkey schedule for the first week of school. You will still need to complete a registration form.
Hot Lunch will be available beginning on the first day. Online ordering at www.st-hilaryschool.org is open August 1-10. Please see the Hot Lunch page on the school website for ordering instructions. Milk will also be available on the first day for those who order it. Milk for the first semester will be ordered during the first round of Hot Lunch ordering, August 1-10. Those wishing to purchase milk must order it through the Hot Lunch ordering system even if no lunches are being ordered.
