    March 30 - May 15, 2015
    Remember that students need to be at school on time every day so that they may take the test with their class and not have to complete a makeup test.
    Students with perfect attendance (no tardies or absences) during their grade level's testing window will be able to attend a field trip to the Kansas City Zoo in May!

    Attendance/Breakfast Reminders
    Please remember that students need to arrive by 7:20 am to have plenty of time to eat breakfast before school starts. Classes begin at 7:40 am. The cafeteria quits serving breakfast at 7:40 am unless there are late buses. If you arrive at 7:40 am or later please bring your child(ren) through the main school doors. Wednesdays are early release days in the Hickman Mills School District and Santa Fe releases students at 1:40 pm on Wednesdays.
