    August 2017, Back to School Information!

    Dear Mather Heights Families,

    Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year! I hope everyone had a great summer! The first day of school is Thursday, August 10. School is from 8:22am-1:52pm for K-2, and 8:22am-2:37pm for 3-5 grades. We invite you to the “Flyer Fly-By” at MHE on Tuesday, August 8th to pick up your student’s class assignment from 8am-10am or 1pm-3pm. PTA will have light refreshments and Spirit Wear available for purchase. Student Leaders will also be offering school tours for new families. If you are unable to stop by school on the 8th, feel free to call the office that day after 3pm, or on Wednesday, Aug 9th between 8am-4pm.

    Click HERE to access grade level supply lists. On the first day of school, students will report to the blacktop for Walking Club. Students may arrive no earlier than 8:10am, and parents are welcome to wait with their students until the bell rings at 8:22am.

    Please take a few minutes to review our Parent/Student Handbook.

    Kinder Orientation will be on the first day of school this year! Parents are invited to stay with their students in their kinder classrooms from 8:22 - 9:15am for introductions and a brief overview of what to expect for the year. Please note that this takes the place of Back to School Night for our kinder families.

    Applications for the National School Breakfast & Lunch Programs can be found online HERE.  Applications can also be picked up in the front office, but the turnaround time is faster if you apply online. A new form must be filled out each year.

    Here is the student insurance form that we are required to send out each year. Voluntary Student Insurance - English / Voluntary Student Insurance - Spanish. Please complete the “Receipt of Notification” form and return it to the office. If you are interested in purchasing insurance, click HERE. Please note that the district does not accept payment or mail forms. You may purchase directly from Student Insurance USA. If you have questions, you may contact them at 800.367.5830.
