Reminder: Doors to Mease and Taft Elementary Schools open at 7:45 a.m. If your child is catching a bus to another school we recommend arriving no earlier than 7:40. As the weather turns colder these children are having to wait too long outdoors. We have had students at both buildings as early as 7:15; there is no supervision at this time. Please refrain from dropping your child off before 7:40. Thank you.
PATHS (Parents and Teachers for Humboldt Students) Gift Card Fundraiser - All elementary students will be bringing home an order form you can use to support our schools by buying gift cards. You purchase gift cards at face value to local and national vendors and the company gives a percentage back to PATHS for selling their gift cards. To see a complete list of businesses participating please check www.shopwithscrip.com use enrollment code: A7LAD8E136656. This is NOT intended to be a door to door fundraiser, but rather for families to support their children’s elementary school. Orders are due by Thursday, October 24th. Gift cards will be available for pick up on Tuesday, November 5 or Thursday, November 7 during Parent Teacher Conferences. If you have questions about this fundraiser or any other questions about PATHS please email email@example.com or find them on Facebook at Humboldt PATHS. Thank you.
To learn more about how our students are performing we thought you might appreciate the link to our school's "report card": Iowa School Performance Profile. You can also access the Iowa School Performance Profile User Guide here. Also if you visit this page on our Website you can access the many resources/websites that are available to the public to review information and data about Humboldt Community School as well as other schools throughout the state.
Lost and Found - jackets, hats and gloves are already starting to pile up in our lost and found. Please be sure to label your child’s outerwear so that if they do misplace it, we can return it to them. The lost and found at Mease is located on the table outside the office. If your child is missing something please check for it there.
Box Tops for Education Program Change - We have collected Box Tops for several years at our elementary schools. We earn 10 cents for every Box Top we receive. We will still continue to collect the clipped Box Tops until it is fazed out. However, there is a Box Top app that you scan your receipt to get our school the credit for the Box Tops on that particular shopping trip. No more clipping! Learn more about these changes at BTFE.com. Thank you for your support!
Parent Portal - all parents have the ability to access their student’s Infinite Campus profile. For elementary students this includes checking meal account balances, making payments, updating phone numbers, addresses, etc. As your child gets older you will be able to see their schedule and their grades. If you would like to gain access please email Michelle Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your activation key and instructions. You will be able to see all of your children who are enrolled in Humboldt Schools with one sign in and password.
