Importance of School Attendance!
If your child will be absent due to an appointment, it is recommended that you attain an excuse from your provider for the date and time of the visit and return the excuse to the school office. This will ensure that the absence is noted as an excused absence or tardy. Appointment cards will NOT be accepted as an excuse.
Call to report your child's daily absence by calling the school's attendance line at 662-7990.
NEW!! Report your child's absence online here: http://forestglenhssd.weebly.com/electronic-absence-form.html
Monitor your child’s tardies and absences through the district website: http://powerschool.hssd.k12.wi.us/public/

School Highlights Continued
Soon we will be developing class lists for the 2018-2019 school year. Creating class lists is always a challenge as we try to make sure each student is placed appropriately and each classroom is balanced. We use the following variables to create classrooms that are optimal for learning:
Mrs. Sorenson and the HSSD Elementary Principals
A parent wanting special consideration for placing an incoming 5th grade student should fill out the Parent Input Form. This form will be available on the Lineville webpage and Lineville school newsletter from April 15 to April 30.
http://linvillenewsletter.weebly.com/ Requests for a specific house or to keep friends together cannot be honored.
Menu Information Regarding Serving Sizes
Please note that portion sizes posted on NutriSlice may not always accurately reflect our planned portion size for the fruits and vegetables.The linked production copy shows our planned portion size. Note that with the strawberries on April 5, NutriSlice shows 1 cup portion, but our planned portion is 1/4 cup. If the student takes 1 scoop of berries, nutritional value would then be based on ¼ cup, not 1 cup.
Please refer to portion sizes identified on the attached menu when reviewing nutritional value of our menu items until we can correct what’s posted to align with our planned serving size. Feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns.
