- Happy 2021!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
- Students are doing an incredible job of following all the COVID rules, thank you for supporting your child through this difficult time. Students continue to wear masks every day and keep them on at all times except when eating or drinking. Students are practicing social distancing throughout the day, and frequently washing their hands. Please continue to monitor you child's health and notify the school if your child has any symptoms listed on the screening tool.

- School lunches remain free for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.
Thank you Hunsberger Families for your generosity in providing gift cards this holiday season to our families in need! Your kindness helped so many families right here at Hunsberger Elementary and at Veterans Memorial Elementary as well! I so appreciate your support and willingness to give, especially when I know everyone has had struggles this year.

FOOD BANK UPDATE:
Thank You!! Thank you for hosting a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada! Your food drive brought in a total of 357 pounds of food which equals 429 meals for families in our community!

The food in our warehouse will be sorted by volunteers and loaded onto Food Bank trucks for distribution. To volunteer or donate please visit the Food Bank website at fbnn.org.
