National School Breakfast Week March 5-9
This year’s theme is “I Heart School Breakfast.” Did you know, students who eat school breakfast are more likely to score higher on standardized tests, have better concentration and memory, be more alert, and maintain a healthy weight?! With hectic mornings, your child has healthy breakfast options available at school! Keep an eye out for some of our most popular breakfast items this week as well as a couple of new items. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in activities and receiving giveaways during breakfast this week.
March is National Nutrition Month. We take the time to focus on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits during this month. There is a wide variety of options offered for school breakfast and lunch. Check out http://hssdwi.nutrislice.com/ for healthy offerings, theme menus, and giveaways!

Course descriptions and registration information will be available on March 14th, and parents and students will learn about band, chorus, and orchestra classes at Lineville. A selection must be made and the registration completed within two weeks.

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/
