    4th grade's  lunchtime is from 12:25-12:55

    Students may bring their own lunch that is labeled, buy a lunch from the cafeteria, or do a combination of both. Each student will have their very own lunch code they will need to enter when purchasing lunch. Their lunch code is the same as their school ID number. You want to start having them practice memorizing this now.

    Students may go through the line to purchase an extra snack or entree. Please not this does cost extra money on top of the regular lunch fee.

    There will no longer be free breakfast and lunch served this year. If you are someone who may benefit from the free and reduced lunch program, please visit the link below to see if you qualify and to sign up.

  • Hedgcoxe Procedures and Reminders

  • Arrival Procedures

    Hedgcoxe opens the doors at 7:00.

    Breakfast is offered from 7:00-7:25.

    Students who will not be eating breakfast will sit in the gym until 7:25. We strongly encourage you if your student is not eating breakfast, to drop them off after 7:15. 

    Students will be able to head to their classrooms at 7:25. 

    We also strongly encourage that your child arrive before 7:35. The tardy bell rings at 7:40 and instructions immediately begin at 7:40. When students are walking in at 7:40-43, they feel very rushed and stressed getting unpacked to join instruction.

    • Please be sure you have a 23-24 carpool tag visible for teachers calling names on the walkie.
      • If you do not have a current carpool tag, or a tag at all, you will be asked to go to the front office to show your identification and your child will be sent to the office for pick up. We realize that this may be frustrating, but this is for the safety of your child.
    • Students will sit in the gym with a grade-level teacher and wait to be called.
    • Once students are outside, they will wait at a cone for you to drive up to.
    • Please be aware of staff and students while driving through the side drive.
    • Cellphone use is not permitted in the carpool lane.

    3-5 - Front Drive (off Prescott)

      • If you do not have a current carpool tag, or a tag at all, you will be asked to go to the front office to show your identification and your child will be sent to the office for pick up. We realize that this may be frustrating, but this is for the safety of your child.
    • 3rd Grade will be waiting in the front hall to be called and 4-5 will be waiting in their grade levels.
    • Once students are outside, they will wait at a cone for you to drive up to.
    • Please be aware of staff and students while driving through the side drive.

    **If you have multiple children and they are spread throughout K-5, please pick them up on Side Drive.**

    Daycare

    Daycare children will go outside and immediately get on their buses/vans/cars if they are there. If they aren't the students will sit and wait with a teacher until their daycare arrives.

    Walkers

    If your child is going to be a walker, please be sure they know the routine. We have many students who are able to walk on their own, and others who wait on their parents. If your child needs to pick up a younger sibling, they will be directed where to go in order to get them. 

    PASAR

    If your child attends PASAR they will be picked up from the grade level by a PASAR staff member.

    Please be sure your child and their teacher know how they will be getting home. If there is a change, please see the procedure in the Change of Dismissal information. 

    Any students who have not been picked up by 3:00pm will go to the front office.

  • Attendance and Change in Dismissal Reminders

    Attendance

    If your child is absent, please call the child safe line prior to 9:00 am. You may also email your child's teacher, but please be sure to copy Mrs. Maybery on the email. If you do not report your child absent, Mrs. Maybery will call to check in on them.

    Arriving Late or Leaving Early Reminders

    It is also helpful to email ahead of time if you know your child will be late or need to leave early for appointments. On these emails please copy Mrs. Maybery, so she is aware.

    Change in Dismissal

    If you know BEFORE school that there will be a change in dismissal for your child, please send the teacher a note or email with the change in the morning or email the office so we are aware.

    If you need to change plans AFTER 7:40am, you have 2 choices:

    • Call the front office, and they will tell the teacher  –OR-
    • E-mail the teacher, and cc: Audrey.Maybery@pisd.edu. She is our attendance secretary. That way, in case the teacher misses it, Mrs. Maybery will make sure that we know and then a green “change in dismissal” card will be sent to notify the teacher. Please do not assume the teacher was able to see your email prior to dismissal.
