Our Mission

The mission of Honey Creek Elementary School is to ensure excellence and empower all students by meeting their academic, behavioral, emotional and social needs. 

Start of the Day
The regular school day is from 7:35 AM until 2:10 PM. The building opens to begin receiving bus riders at 7:00 AM and 7:05 for car riders. Please do not drop off your child prior to this time as there may not be supervision available. Parents should use the front driveway when delivering or picking up children. The back driveway is reserved for bus traffic only.

After School
Please do not park. Display your child's car tag when picking them up in the afternoon.

After 2:40 PM, any child who has not been picked up will be sent to the front office and parents will need to come in and be signed out.

On the day your child returns to school, please send a note stating the reason for the absence. Excused absences include: 1) personal illness, 2) a family illness, 3) death in the family, or 4) religious holiday.
