Dear Families, 


This letter is to inform you of a change to the morning arrival at Hudson Park Elementary for students in kindergarten through fifth grade effective Monday, January 10.  Beginning Monday, students in K-5 will enter through the main entrance when they arrive at school each morning (no earlier than 7:45 a.m.) instead of going to the covered area to wait with their class for all students to arrive.  Teachers will be in their classrooms and ready for students beginning at 7:45 a.m. each day.  As a reminder, due to COVID restrictions, any adult who would like to enter the school building must check in at the HPE office window first and show proof of COVID vaccination.  


The afternoon dismissal plan will remain the same.  Parent pick-up will remain under the covered area and the adult picking up the child must be prepared to show ID at the time of checkout.  


When transporting your child to school, please use the parent parking lot for parking.  The bus lane is reserved for buses only during AM arrival and PM dismissal. 


Daily Schedule: M, T, Th, F 8:00 a.m.-2:45 p.m., W 8:00 a.m.-12:45 p.m.


Finally, Rainier School District #13 will be conducting vision screenings PreK-12 on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.   Also, as a reminder, Immunization Exclusion Day is February 16, 2022.  Please contact District Nurse, Danielle Nelson, with any questions:

Please reach out with any questions, concerns, or feedback.   

Thank you,  

Megan Keplinger
