HOPE – Students and parents in the Hope Public School District planning to send a gift to their student or sweetie on campus on Valentine’s Day are reminded that guidelines will be in place Feb. 14 regarding Valentine’s Day gifts.

Senior students will not be in class at Hope High School on Valentine’s Day because of a Career and College Day; but, floral gifts sent by parents or guardians of students will be accepted for grades 9-11 in the HHS Auxiliary Gym from 7:30-11:30 a.m., according to Principal Bill Hoglund. The student recipient’s full name and grade should be clearly written on the accompanying card. Hoglund said balloons will not be accepted because they are not allowed on school buses.

Deliveries at Yerger Middle School will be accepted from 8-11 a.m., and no balloons will be allowed, Principal Josclyn Wiley said.

The same policy will be applied at the Hope Academy of Public Service on the Garland Campus, according to Principal Dr. Carol Ann Duke. Deliveries may be made between 7:30 a.m. and noon.

Valentine’s Day deliveries to the Beryl Henry Elementary School campus should be on campus by 11 a.m., according to Principal Dr. Roy Turner. The student recipient’s name and homeroom teacher’s name should be clearly written on the accompanying card, Turner said. Balloons will not be allowed on buses, and any gifts which include balloons must be picked up at the campus office by a parent or guardian.

Deliveries at Clinton Primary School will be accepted from 8:30-11 a.m., Casey Schoenberger, CPS media specialist, said. Gifts must be no larger than 18 inches tall, and must be clearly marked with the student recipient’s name, teacher’s name, and grade. Gifts with balloons will not be allowed on school buses, and must be picked up in the car line by a parent or guardian, Schoenberger said.
