Announcements and Events

Information from Health Services
Dear Parent/Guardian,
This message is for any student who has had permission to receive medication at school.
Medication not picked up on the last day of school will be brought to the Health Services Department of TUSD.  If the parent or guardian does not arrange (call for an appointment) to pick up medication within 30 days of this notice, the medication will be disposed of by the school nurse in accordance with the applicable state law and local ordinances.  
For those students continuing, the permission form you signed must be renewed each school year or with any change to medication and dosage.  The medication must be in the original container and must be labeled with the same directions as the physician’s order.
Please contact your school site or Heath Services for a “Permission for Medication(s) in School”, which needs to be filled out and signed by your physician and the legal guardian.   
Please return the paperwork and medication to the school office at the beginning of the next school year.  NO medication will be dispensed without this completed documentation.
If you have any questions, please call us at 830-3241. Press 2.   
Thank you,
School Nurse
Estimado Padre/Tutor,

Este mensaje es para cualquier estudiante que ha tenido permiso para recibir medicamentos en la escuela.

El medicamento que no se recoja el último día de clases será llevado al Departamento de TUSD Servicios de Salud. Si el padre o tutor no hace arreglos (llamar para hacer una cita) para recoger el medicamento dentro de los 30 días de este aviso, el medicamento será desechado por la enfermera de la escuela, de acuerdo con la ley estatal aplicable y las ordenanzas locales.

Para aquellos estudiantes que continúan, el formulario de permiso que firmó debe ser renovado cada año escolar o con cualquier cambio en la medicación y la dosis. El medicamento debe estar en su envase original y deben ser etiquetados con las mismas indicaciones que la orden del médico.

Por favor, póngase en contacto con su escuela o con Servicios de Salud para un "Permiso para Medicamentos (s) en la Escuela", que debe completarse y ser firmado por el médico y el tutor legal.

Por favor, devuelva el formulario y los medicamentos a la oficina de la escuela al comienzo del próximo año escolar. Ningún medicamento se dispensará sin esta documentación completa.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, por favor llámenos al 830-3241.

School Resumes
Book Fair Begins
Back to School Night


Dear Hirsch Families,

I hope that you all had a wonderful summer, and I would like to welcome you to our new school year!  I have always loved the beginning of the school year.  Even as a child, I remember the start of school meaning new things:  a new outfit, new pencils, a new teacher, and meeting new classmates as well as connecting with old friends.  It’s also a time that can make one nervous.   We want to make sure all students feel safe and comfortable, but challenged with new learning. It’s a great time to start the year with a fresh outlook: think about the accomplishments from last year, and how we might want to do things similarly or differently for the new year.

We have a terrific staff.  Our teachers are smart, caring and hardworking.  They collaborate with each other and are life-long learners.  Our staff is dedicated to providing not just engaging learning opportunities, but with a great overall school experience.

Character Education is very important at Wanda Hirsch.  We focus on six pillars of character:  trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. I want your child to feel welcomed and treated respectfully, as well as to welcome and treat others with respect.  Opportunities to practice good character occur throughout the day.

I want students to have fun while they learn.  I want them to think, solve problems, make mistakes, and build perseverance.  Students will receive rigorous and engaging lessons which will build upon each other, to help prepare them for middle school, high school, and eventually college and/or career.  In the meantime, please be an active part of your child’s school life.  Please attend the many family events that our school offers, and be involved.  Back to School Night is Thursday, August 11th.  Your child’s teacher will go over what your child will learn this year in more detail.

I’m looking forward to a fantastic year!


Cindy Sasser

Assistant Principal Message

Dear Parents, Students and Staff,

 I am truly honored and filled with excitement to join the Patriot Community as the new Assistant Principal of Wanda Hirsch Elementary. I look forward to assisting Mrs. Sasser in making this a great school year. My goal for this school year is to not only support the academic achievement of all our students, but to also support and build trusting relationships with the students, teachers, staff and parents.

 I will be splitting my time between Hirsch and Poet. However, I will always do my best to be available to answer questions, so do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything. Also, please feel free to stop by and say hello, as my door will always be open. I wish all of you a great school year and I cannot wait to meet you.


            Ms. Andrews​
