FAQ

  • BUILDING SECURITY

    Posted by:
    For the security of our students and staff, all visitors must enter and exit our building at the front office. We ask you also visibly display a visitor sticker for all staff to see.
    We are strictly enforcing this new safety measure and ask for your cooperation. 
    Please do not be offended if you are not following this policy and get stopped by a staff member. We have been trained to stop people on premise not wearing a sticker. This is for ALL student and staff safety.
     
    Thank You.

  • Excessive Tardiness

    Hello Parents: We are noticing more and more students arriving to school tardy. Please plan accordingly the night before so that you are all ready for the morning chaos. With that being said, students should not arrive to school before 8:35am. ALL STUDENTS go to either breakfast or the playground at 8:35am. There is no hanging out in the front foyer waiting for the bell to ring. Teachers are getting their rooms ready for the day so kids may not go to the classroom unless plans have been made prior.

  • Hello Houghtaling Parents!
    Our teachers at Houghtaling strive to give as much instructional time to our students as possible. For this reason, we are asking for your help with keeping classroom interruptions limited. If you need to bring something to school for you child, please leave items at the front office and our staff will see that it gets to your child's classroom.  If you are wanting to visit your child, we ask that you come during their lunch/recess time only. Please sign in at the office and have a visitor sticker visible at all times.
     
    If you need to speak to your child's teacher... no problem! Just call our front office at 225-4128, and we will transfer you over to your child's teacher's voicemail and they will call you back to set up an appointment. You may also email your child's teacher at firstname.lastname@k21schools.org
