Some solutions to the uniform shortage
C&J Uniforms and Lands' End are currently experiencing shipping delays for uniforms. If — and only if — you can't find logoed shirts in the needed size, there are a few options until supplies are replenished.
1. The Dutch Exchange in the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center can be opened for parents looking for shirts, pants and skirts. Everything in the Exchange is gently used. Just check in at the front reception desk during school hours — 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
2. Middle School students can wear any gray polo shirt — with or without a logo — for the time being. A Holland Hall Tshirt also would be acceptable for a very short time. Primary School students can wear plain white polo shirts until orders are in.
Extended Day Programs
Many families require care for their children beyond the normal school hours. Holland Hall offers before- and after-school care for students, including drop-ins, allowing flexibility and convenience for our families. Our Extended Day Program is supported by the Procare app — found in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Before-school care begins as early as 7 a.m. and lasts until the students are dismissed to their classrooms for the start of the school day. After-school care begins at 2:45 p.m. for EPK, PreK, and JK students and at 3 p.m. for students in Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third grades. We request parents email their child’s teacher and cc Debbie Almohandis if they know they will be attending aftercare regularly or need to drop-in for the day. Teachers need to know who is going home and who is staying. For questions concerning Extended Day programs, please contact Debbie Almohandis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New families, you will get a Procare email with your unique code closer to the start of school. Follow the steps to copy and paste the code to your Procare App. You will then receive your PIN code via another email that you will utilize for each check-in and check-out from your mobile device. Tap on the padlock icon on the top right corner of your phone, it will unlock the padlock and your PIN code will drop down.
When you get your email, make sure to open the app and update your child's birthday, any allergies, additional people who are authorized to pick up your child and payment information.
HH families and students will need to register their cars for a new permit this year.
To register your car, go to https://hollandhall.org/parkingpermit. You will be asked for the make/model/color and license plate number of your car. Permits may be picked up at the front desk of the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center.
