    Hawks, 

    The school year is off to a great start! I am extremely proud of the way the students have adjusted to being back on a schedule at school.  

    Attached is the schedule that will we will begin using on Tuesday, Sept. 4 as we begin on our Talon schedule. Students should check Focus on Monday, Sept. 3 for their Talon assignment. We will also have lists with each students Talon assignment in the main hall on Tuesday morning.

    Please also make note that we will host our annual Open House on Wednesday, Sept. 5 from 6-8 p.m. You can use Focus to access your students schedule or we will have staff in the bookroom to provide you with a paper copy of the schedule. I will send out a detailed schedule for the evening tomorrow.

    As always, thank you for your support of Hendrickson High School and please contact us if we may be of service. 

    Respectfully,

    Daniel Garcia
    Principal
    Robert E. Hendrickson High School 

    Cross Walk Information:

    Below is some information provided by the City of Pflugerville, regarding a new cross walk at the intersection of Kelly Lane and Kennemer:

    The City of Pflugerville wants to make sure that all parents and drivers are aware of the new crosswalk coming on Kelly Lane that affects driving and walking patterns near schools.

    Thank you to all school staff, principals and parents for your continued patience as we work together to improve safety along our routes to school.

    Based on staff observation of the intersection and with input from the Pflugerville Independent School District and parents, the City will add a second crosswalk from the northeast corner of the intersection to the southeast corner to reduce the time needed for safe crossing by about 16 seconds which allows another 8 to 10 vehicles per signal per cycle. The new crosswalk on the east side of the Kennemer and Kelly Lane intersection will help maintain safe crossing options during peak school travel times while reducing traffic delays during rush hour.

    During the morning hours of 7-8 a.m., heavy southbound right-turn and westbound vehicular traffic volumes at the intersection conflict with pedestrian traffic at the intersection for Murchison Elementary, Kelly Lane Middle School and Hendrickson High School campuses. For student safety at the existing crosswalks, the City has operated the traffic signal with an “exclusive pedestrian phase” which requires all vehicular traffic to stop in all directions to allow continuous walking periods across the street. The exclusive phase will continue, but the crossing time will reduce thanks to the second crosswalk. The City is working on bids now and plans to have the sidewalk and signal improvements in place by early September.

    If you have any questions on these projects, please contact the City’s project manager, Chad Wood, at chadw@pflugervilletx.gov or by phone at (512) 990-6341. Please review the attached plan for additional information and enjoy a safe Back to School.

    Hawks,

    Welcome to the first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year. I am excited that our students will finally be arriving on campus and look forward to catching up with them about their summer.

    Class:

    Students should report to their first period class by 8:55 a.m. and we will use the attached schedule on Thursday, Aug. 16 and Friday, Aug. 17. We will have an alpha list posted in the main hallways of where students should report for first period. Please have your students check the list, just in case there were any last-minute changes to their schedule. When they arrive to their first period class, students will receive a new copy of their schedule from their teacher.

    Traffic:

    Please be prepared to be extremely patient tomorrow. There will be an unusual amount of around the Murchison, Kelly Lane and Hendrickson school complex for the next several days. Weather-permitting, walking is always a great option! This allows you to avoid the frustrations of traffic and long waits. If you are dropping your students off at Hendrickson tomorrow please be prepared for long car lines, especially as we get closer to the 1st period bell at 8:55 a.m. and at dismissal at 4:15. I ask that you be patient as everyone tries to navigate the additional traffic around the schools.

    Buses:

    New route information is on the district's website, which you can find at www.pfisd.net/busroutes.

    Please also visit the School Finder link to see if your student qualifies for transportation and to view your student’s bus route.

    Additionally, Durham has provided a breakdown of bus routes and times in several communities that have single addresses with multiple lots, including: Branch Creek, Boulder Ridge North and South, Dessau Fountain Estates and River Ranch. These can be viewed here.

    Respectfully,

    Hawks, 

    With the end of the school year quickly approaching, here are some important times and dates for senior parents and students to remember.

    Attached you will find an information packet from the Frank Erwin Center, with important information about parking and the facility. Please pay special attention to the list of items that they do not allow in the building, this list begins on page 3 of the attached PDF. It was shared at our graduation meeting with the Frank Erwin staff, that large bags/backpacks would not be allowed and that any visitors with large bags/backpacks will be asked to return them to their vehicle.

    Mandatory Graduation Practices:

    • June 5 at 2-4 p.m. in the HHS Main Gym
    • June 6 at 2-4 p.m. in the HHS Main Gym
    • June 9 at 1 p.m. all graduating seniors must be in the HHS Main Gym. 
    • June 9 at 1:30 p.m. buses depart for the Frank Erwin Center.

    Because of parking concerns all seniors that are participating in the graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 9, 2018 are required to ride the bus to the Frank Erwin Center. Students need to be in the HHS Main Gym by 1 p.m. in order to prepare to load the buses. Though return transportation will be provided if necessary, students are encouraged to leave the Erwin Center with their families.

    Senior Celebration:

    Attached you will find information from the Hendrickson High School Senior Celebration committee regarding the Project Graduation event that will be held on June 9, 2018, at 10 p.m. at Hendrickson High School.

    Class of 2018 Senior Celebration Information and Invitation to Class of 2019: 

    We are coming down to the final days before the big event! We are going to need a lot of help the night of the event to make it a successful and fun time for the graduates. Please consider signing up to volunteer. Your student will receive 1 ticket for each hour someone volunteers in their name.

    Click here for the sign up for the event.

    If your student hasn't turned in their registration form yet, there is still time. The registration form is attached here. Also, the waiver for the mechanical bull is attached so if your student wants to ride it, make sure this is turned in as well. Any student under 18 must have their parent signature but if they are over 18, they can sign it.

    Also, you can still purchase Scentsy through this link and help support the event. This will run through the end of May.

    Our last meeting before the event will be on Thursday evening, June 7, in the HHS cafeteria. We would like to invite Class of 2019 parents to join us there. You will be electing your officers for HHS Class of 2019 Senior Celebration. There are four positions (president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary). We added a fifth Member-at-Large position for fundraising but that is optional for your class. After the election takes place, we will begin our set up for event night. Class of 2019, if you could help with the set-up on Saturday afternoon while we are at the graduation ceremony, it would be greatly appreciated. There is a spot on the sign up for this. 

    Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting and the event!

    • Julie Hartle – Vice President

    Hawks,

    As we get closer to the end of the school year, we are beginning to get more questions about finals and our exemption policy. There has been a clarification of the sign and go practice that we had used before and it did not meet the requirements for counting students present in class. To correct this discrepancy, we have developed a finals schedule that continues to honor the academic focus of our students. The change is that students will not be able to sign and go, but must remain in class even if they are exempt. Again, the change is due to the clarification of state attendance rules.

    As always, please contact us if we may be of service and we appreciate all your support of our students and programs.

    Respectfully,

    Daniel Garcia
    Principal
    Robert E. Hendrickson High School

    Hawks,

    We wrapped up the week and successfully made it through the STAAR ELA I and ELA II exams. I was proud and impressed with the hard work of our students and staff. I am grateful for the team spirit displayed by all, as we worked to ensure the success of our students.

    I will send out the finals testing schedule and exemption forms early next week, as a reminder to students about the importance and benefits of being in attendance. I have received a few questions about what counts against exemptions, so I will include that information as well.

    Attached you will also find information on the Senior Panoramic picture, which we are taking on Thursday, April 19 at 10 a.m. 

    As always, thank you for your support of our students and campus!

    Respectfully,

    Daniel Garcia
