FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who do I call if my child will be missing school?

Please call the front desk at 541-757-5958

When your child is absent for either a full or partial day, it is very important to report the absence to the office by 9:00 am the day of the absence. In the interest of student health and safety, the office staff will  start to phone parents or contacts who have not reported to us after the 9:00am cut off.

When leaving a voice message to report and absence, please include 1) your name, 2) student’s name, 3) teacher, and 4) nature of the absence. If you are prearranging an absence for another day, please include the date(s) of the absence. As always, you are welcome to phone Marcy Hermens or Natalie Kovac at the above number for questions about this process.

Where do I get emergency and school closure information?

Emergency notifications (such as snow days or delayed openings) are communicated district wide via Flash Alert. You can sign up for this service through our District Website.

These notifications will also go out through our Hoover Listerv (please email Marcy at the front desk to be added to this email). We also post emergency notifications on the Hoover Facebook Page.

What is the Hoover Dress Code?

Student dress and grooming are the responsibilities of the individual and parents under the following guidelines:

  1. Dress and grooming shall be in keeping with health, sanitary, and safety practices.
  2. When a student is participating in special activities, dress and grooming shall not disrupt the performance or constitute a health or safety threat to the individual or other students.
  3. Dress and grooming shall not disrupt or impede the teaching/learning process. For example, all students should wear (or bring) tennis shoes to participate in PE class.
  4. Students should dress appropriately for the day’s weather in order to participate in recess, which will be outside every day regardless of weather. Specifically, on rainy days, students need to be wearing waterproof jackets with hoods. Our recess breaks are held outside, rain or shine.
