  • Playground Supervision

    For student safety, PLEASE remember that the playground will not have adult supervision until 8:35am. It is very important that students are not dropped off prior to that time. If your child walks to school, please talk to them about this topic so they do not arrive before supervision is available. There will also be no adult supervision on any playgrounds after 3:30pm.

What's Happening

  • Houghtaling Families: Please click this heading to read some great information. 

    COVID-19 Information

    Houghtaling Elementary School is being extra vigilant about hand washing and helping remind others to do so. We are clorox wiping surfaces and trying to remind each other to refrain from "hands to face".  If your child has a fever or is exhibiting flu like symptoms in the evening or in the morning, please do not send them to school. Staying home and resting when you are sick will help slow the spread of any virus. Thank You!
