Dear Hofstetter Families,

This letter is regarding daily drop-off and pick-up. Doors begin opening at 7:40. If you drop your student off in the mornings and park on Hofstetter Street to walk your child across the street, please use the crosswalk.  Hofstetter will have a crossing guard posted on the Hofstetter and 7th Street intersection to help your child safely cross the street. For families who use the line to drop-off, thank you so much for working with your child to have him or her ready to quickly exit the vehicle in the mornings.  This has facilitated our morning drop-off to move much faster.

In the afternoons, Hofstetter has a few asks of our families, both of which are safety issues. The first is that you are not on your cell phone during pick-up. We have had several vehicles drive into and up onto the sidewalk due to the distraction of cell phones.

The second ask is that Hofstetter families help us be a good neighborhood school to surrounding families. Hofstetter has seen an increase in the line of cars arriving up to 90 minutes early for pick-up. Students are released at 2:22. We are asking that all vehicle owners turn their engines off whilst they wait for pick-up to help improve air quality, reduce emissions, and create a healthier environment around our school neighborhood.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and, as always, please contact the office if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.



Ann McKern, Principal
