A word from Mr.
It’s hard to put into words
how appreciative I am of the Hickory Hill community. I have gotten to
know so many wonderful, supportive, and involved families, and feel honored to
have joined such a fabulous group of students and staff. I hope that in
some small way, I have impacted this community of learners in a positive way.
All the students, staff, and families who have collectively worked
together to make Hickory Hill a safe, friendly, and welcoming place for
everyone are second to none and you all deserve a huge thank you from me!
My best wishes go out to everyone this summer. Thanks for your
trust and support!
This will be our last
newsletter for the year—I want to wish all families a safe and fun summer and
we know you are all looking forward to the new school year beginning on August
12, 2014. Our annual Barbeque/Safe Walk will be on Monday, August 11th,

Enjoy the summer!

Ready for 7th Grade
La Vista Junior High
will be holding its 2014-2015 Fall Student Check-In for incoming 7th
and 8th graders on Wednesday, August 6th. The day will
start at 7:30 for 7th grade students and end the day with 8th
grade students arriving at 12:00. Students will turn in required forms
and physicals, complete necessary heath screens, have pictures taken, receive
schedules, tour the building, deposit lunch money and purchase Monarch
wear. Please save the date and look for more information as summer
A reminder from the
school nurse: Nebraska law requires students entering 7th
grade are to have a complete physical (this physical also fulfills the
requirements for a sports physical). Nebraska law may allow this
requirement to be waived in certain situations – contact your school nurse if
you have questions. Physicals are also required if your child plans
to participate in a sport. Please note that Sports physicals will NOT be
accepted for the required 7th grade physicals.
Also, 7th grade students are required to have the Tdap
immunization, so please make sure this is included at the time of your
physical. La Vista Jr. High will be closed for the summer and our
secretary will be working from PLHS this summer. Paperwork can be turned
in over the summer to the high school. Please contact the La Vista Jr.
High Nurse, Trish Franck, if you have any questions or concerns at
