From the Principal

August 2015



Dear Holman Families,

I hope the summer finds you rested, relaxed, and enjoying all of the wonderful things that summer brings.  As you continue to enjoy the warmer days in August....I would like to welcome all of you to the new 2015-2016 school year at the Lucy N. Holman Elementary School.  The First Day of School for all students will be Wednesday, September 2nd



The ELEMENTARY PORTAL opens on Tuesday, August 25th.  You may use your Portal Access Information to obtain student schedules.


Kindergarten Students:  Parents of incoming Kindergarten students will be receiving a letter with various school information and a color-coded tag with the teacher assignment.  This color-coded tag will help our staff to assist with the arrival and dismissal of our precious newcomers. 



Parents of incoming Kindergarten students are invited to come to Holman’s Kindergarten Orientation.  Parents will learn about the Kindergarten day, our wonderful school, and the curriculum.  Students will meet their teacher, participate in a brief activity and tour the school and a bus.  The program will last approximately one (1) hour.  We look forward to seeing all new Kindergarten students and their parents on Monday, August 31 at 10:00am in the APR. Parents and students may enter through the main front entrance of the Holman School.


Transportation:  Bus passes will be available on the portal on Wednesday, August 26th.  Please assist your child in learning their bus number and have them bring their bus pass to school for the first few weeks.  Children in Kindergarten and First Grade should wear their bus pass for the first few weeks of school as well.  If you are unable to print your bus pass or do not have computer access, you may come to the Administration Building on Friday, Aug. 28 or Tuesday, Sept. 1 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Please remember to bring photo ID. 



Childcare Program:  If your child(ren) are attending the Jackson Child Care Program, please send in clear instructions on dismissal directions the first three (3) days of school for your child’s teacher to avoid potential confusion.
