    Unit Five school webites (including this one) will be undergoing redesign changes soon. We hope you will enjoy the new look.

    We have all been watching the news regarding the devasting weather that has hit our southern states recently. After Hurricane Harvey hit, our school district was in contact with a school administrator in the town of Katy Texas. Her name is Erica Whitney and she is a graduate of Normal West High School. Over 15,000 students were impacted by the storm with 16 schools impacted by flooding. Hudson School will be partnering with other Unit Five Schools in helping them. We will be collecting gift cards to send down to Erica's school district to be distributed directly to those in greatest need. Our gift cards must come from the following stores and gas stations

    Kroger/Walmart/Target and Sam's to be used for groceries and personal needs

    Shell/Chevron and BP to be used for gasoline

    Lowe's and Home Depot to be used for building supplies for house rebuilds (drywall, screws, etc)

    We wanted the funds to go towards a certain purpose, not just general money. Please have cards here at school by Sept. 21 so we can get them sent in one shipment from Unit Five. It is important to note that this is entirely optional for our families and we certainly understand that many of you have already made donations in other ways. Thank you so much!

    Important information regarding student drop-off/pick-up  
    All Hudson families should note our drop off and pick up procedures this year. In the morning all students (except La Petite and bus students)  need to enter the main doors off of our parking lot.
    Students may enter the building beginning at 7:15 a.m. with teacher supervision beginning at 7:25 a.m. Students are to wait in our main hallway outside the office until the 7:30 a.m. bell and then proceed to the gym until morning announcements are given at 7:40 a.m. We ask all students to be in the gym at 7:40 a.m.
    The school day officially begins at 7:45 a.m. so students arriving after that time will be considered tardy and will need to be signed in at the office by a responsible adult. At the end of the day, a dismissal bell will ring at 2:30 p.m. Students will be dismissed out of the following doors: All bus riders exit the west door onto the bus lane. All walkers and bike riders exit the east door off of McLean Street. This is where parents should pick up students if they are not using the car lane.  
    All students being picked up by cars in our car lane will exit the main south doors. They wait inside the school and will be called out to their pick-up car by a staff member. If you are picking up students by car, you should make sure you display your car tag on your inside mirror so that our staff can correctly call students to the pick-up lane. Car tags are available at our school office. It is very important that you communicate any change of pick-up to your child, your child's teacher, and the school office.
