PRE-ENROLLMENT INFO 2020 – 2021 School Year
To Parent/Guardian of 8th grade students at HEFNER:
The school year is flying by and that means it is time to start transitioning your child to the high school. We have some exciting things lined up for you and your child regarding high school enrollment!
On February 5th, the high school counselors from PC North will be coming to Hefner to speak to your child in his or her Science class.
On February 10th at 5:30 PM, all 8th grade parents and students are invited to PC North High School for a general assembly detailing the enrollment process.
On February 11th, 12th and 13th, the actual enrollment process will take place at school through your child’s History class. We welcome you to join your student during this time so that counselors can address your individual questions and concerns. A letter will be coming home with your student with specific day and time.
If you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to call or email the 8th grade counselor at Hefner, Kathy Winham at 721-2411 ext. 3437 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congratulations to our Students of the Week. Avery Stone 6A, Armaan Madahar 7A, Darnell Hodge 8A. Stop by the office to pick up your prize.
FCCLA meeting is cancelled today.
The library trivia question last week was “Would you like to live in a yurt?” A yurt is a circular tent of felt or skins on a collapsible framework, used originally in Mongolia and Siberia by groups who needed to move frequently with their livestock. Answers were about evenly divided. Some students thought it would be fun, but for others it was a definite no. Winners are Ryan Harris, Noah Shannon, and Jaylon Murry.
6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Resident Affidavits/ Verification
If you are currently residing with another family member or a friend and have enrolled your child or children into the Putnam City School District using their address for proof of residency, you must update your residency affidavit/verification form BEFORE the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
What to Bring: Both parties (parent/guardian and property owner) must appear to sign the documents with their personal identification, such as a driver’s license. In addition, the property owner must bring his/her lease or mortgage and a current utility bill (electric, gas or water). The parent/guardian will need to provide official mail such as a bank statement medical bill, insurance papers, DHS documents or other personal bills.
iPad Continuation Plan
Putnam City School District is proud to be a one-to-one technology district. This individual access to iPads allows our students the privilege to be on the cutting edge of education. To ensure that we can continue this program, students will be held accountable for damaged iPads. Below is the iPad Continuation Plan. Even with this plan, the district incurs a large amount of repair cost. Students will be held accountable for a portion of repair cost upon the second incident of damage during middle school, even if the damage does not occur within the same school
year. Incidents of damage do not start over each year, instead they carry over each year of middle school. Students who have outstanding damage fees will only be allowed access to a computer in the classroom until the damage charge is paid in full. The most common incident reported is iPads being stepped on while on the floor. Please communicate with your student to keep their iPad off of the floor at all times, especially while at lockers and switching classes. We look forward to another year of learning on iPads, and are grateful that our district is able to provide these great learning tools on an individual basis to students. iPad Continuation Plan: 1st Time – No charge, 2nd Time -$30 charge, 3rd Time - $50 charge, 4th Time -Full Repair Cost
