2015 Jog-A-Thon Is Here

Our annual fund raising event is here. This year we have challenged all students to participate in this 2K jog. What we need from you is to sponsor them. They should be asking their family and all relatives to sponsor them in this great endeavor. Sponsorship is easy. Each student has an envelope that will be returned by October 30th, the day of the run, to see how many raffle drawings they can enter. Of course the envelope will contain your pledge. To make it even easier we have an online pledge site ready to accept your bank card pledge. That site is www.pledgestar.com/hughes.

Bell Schedule

The school day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:40 pm. Students may not be on campus after 3:50pm unless they are in a school sponsored activity. Parents, please pick up your children from school as soon as possible so students are not lingering in front of the school. To assist us, please make arrangements with friends or family to have a place for your child after school.

2015 School Uniform Policy

We will continue to implement our school uniform policy. This is a revised policy as of August 2015. Adherence to the ID and uniform policy is required for attendance at Hughes. There is no doubt that the uniform policy reduces student misbehavior and allows us to focus on providing a meaningful instructional program for all students. Thank you for your support in our efforts to provide a safe and orderly environment.

  • Students must wear solid light blue, navy, or white collared shirts. Note: Plaids, stripes, sheer material or other designs will not be allowed. No sheer blouses that reveal undershirts are allowed.
  • Navy blue pants, Bermuda-like shorts (at the knees) or skirts are permitted. Dark blue jeans may be worn provided they are in good condition and free of logos and designs (no frays, tears, holes, etc.). Students may not wear sweats or athletic wear.
  • Only solid white, blue, gray or black sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets will be allowed as outer wear. These must be logo free.
  • Only white, blue, black, or gray undershirts may be worn.

After School Program

Hughes does not offer an on-site after school program. You will need to refer to outside agencies (Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, or a private agency) if you need an after school program for your student.

The course will be flat, fast and fun! Extra raffle tickets will be given to the fastest runners in each grade level and class period!
  • The library is open during lunch for the first 5 minutes only. That gives you enough time to check in and check out a book. Computers are no longer available during lunch. If you need to print something from the library computer, you must do it before or after school, not at lunch.
  • Did you miss picture day? Don’t worry; make-up picture day is this Friday, October 9th during your P.E. class.  This is not a free dress day so please make sure you’re in uniform.   Once you’ve taken your picture you will get your ID.   Please see Ms. Mack before or after school if you’ve lost your ID and need a replacement. The fee is $5.
  • For safety reasons, please do not run across the grass and jump over the metal chains.
