Principal’s Principles

June 2019

Dear Colonial Trail Parents:

Can you believe we’ve made it to June?  Thank you so much for your partnership in providing our students with a love of learning all school year long!  Here are a few end-of-year highlights and reminders.

END OF YEAR TESTING

We are nearly done with testing and testing retakes!  We applaud all of our students on a job well done.  This year SOL results and MAPS results will accompany report cards on June 14th.

END OF YEAR REMINDERS

As the weather is warmer, please continue keep in mind students must follow the dress code outlined in the Parent Handbook/HCPS Code of Conduct.  The following are not appropriate for school.

  • Tank tops/sleeveless shirts (boys); spaghetti tops (girls)
  • Short shorts or cutoffs
  • Clothing that exposes the midriff
  • Flip flops are not allowed; sandals, Jellies and Crocs are discouraged because they do not allow students to safely participate in physical education.

Please also help your child to adhere to all aspects of the HCPS Code of Conduct to end the year positively.
