We understand that many families will have multiple students. We are unable to change lunch times to accommodate different grades eating at the same time. Please arrange what will work best for your family.
Due to safety concerns, grandparents/family members are not allowed to go to the playground with their students.
Mark your calendars for the events coming up as we come to the end of the school year.

Turn off TV-Screen Free Week 4-22
Turn Off the TV & Screen Free Week is so that we can look the role that TV/screens play in our daily lives as an entertainer, pacifier, babysitter, time filler and background noise.
Television & screens are generally a passive "non-activity" which often detracts from more healthy, interpersonal, productive, rewarding and community-oriented activities.
Turn Off the TV & Screen Free Week is about having more fun outside of screens and turning "on" your life. It's an opportunity to rediscover the wide range of activities that exist when one unplugs from the sedentary, image-based, simplistic and commercial world of television, computers, and other electronic devices.
During this week we would like to encourage you to turn off your TV & screens.
If your student would like to participate, have them watch less TV & have less screen time this week. Ideally, we would encourage them to turn off the TV & screens completely. If they do turn off the TV & screens (or watch at least 50% less than normal for that child), have them bring the signed pledge back to school by Monday, May 2nd .

Dear Hayden Peak Families,
We are excited to begin a campaign to get all our students to school on time, called “Every Minute Counts!” Did you know that if 800 students got to school at 8:25 for an entire school year, and we were able to start working 10 minutes earlier, we would gain almost 1.4 million minutes more of instructional time? That’s a lot of minutes!
Parents, we need your help! Beginning March 14th, we will be tracking our daily tardies, which means students who get to school after classes go in their grade level doors at 8:25. If we reduce them by just a few each week, our students will get 10 minutes of fun activities for rewards. The first reward is a two-minute dance party every afternoon for a week. Continuing to reduce the tardies will result in minute-to-win-it games, extra recess time, 10 minutes of sprinklers at field day, and even a bounce house at field day!
Please let us know if you have extenuating circumstances that will cause your children to be late. And scheduled appointments, like checking in late because of a dentist appointment, don’t count against our totals. We are anxious to have our normal days begin on time. That’s where you can help!
While we are talking about school, did you know that our pre-covid attendance rate was above 95%? This year, our current attendance rate is 71%. We are hopeful that as illnesses recede and the weather warms, our attendance rate can return to pre-pandemic levels. Every healthy day in school is a day when students are learning!
Thank you for helping us make the most of each minute of school!
