  • 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.

    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.

  • safety Our staff outside are working everyday as quickly as possible to help children get safely to their waiting vehicles. If your child is a pick up in the drive through lane, please remind them to go directly outside to your car and not dilly dally. We are trying to keep the pick up lane flowing. Thank you Parents for your patience! As the weather is changing and it is getting darker we are asking our pick up parents to please use caution and drive slowly. Also, please use the crosswalk in front of the building anytime you are crossing the street. The crosswalk is a huge safety feature put in place to keep everyone safe. Thank You!


    Remember - PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE UPPER LOT anywhere at the end of the day UNLESS you use the front handicap spots. Not even for a couple minutes.

    This is a HUGE safety issue for kiddos!

  • 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
