  1. Student course fee Statements are paperless and will be available on Skyward Family Access in mid‐September under the Fee Management tab.  Fee Payments are due by the payment due date.  Payments and payment arrangements may be made online via eFunds by the due date.  Up to $8.35 in processing fees along with collection fees may be added if the balance remains outstanding after the due date and no payment arrangements have been made.  All returned checks will result in a $20.00 non‐sufficient funds fee.  Loss, theft, or “beyond use” damage fees will be assessed by the bookstore and collected at the end of each semester or year.  Payments may be made online via eFunds.  A link to eFunds can be found at www.hseschools.org in the list of links on the lower right.  If you do not have internet access please call (317) 594‐4190, ext. 8216 to request a paper statement.

BUILDING SERVICE PERSONNEL
Building service personnel are very important people in our school system.  Be considerate and appreciative of their efforts.  Help assist these people by using proper waste cans, not writing on desks, etc. to help make our school a cleaner, better place.
 
CAFETERIA SERVICES
Students spend their entire lunchtime in the cafeteria or commons area to avoid distraction to the classes still in session.  Students are not to go to lockers, Guidance Office, or classroom areas without permission during lunch hours.  HSE High School operates as a closed campus.  No one may leave the school building for lunch.  A student may, however, choose to bring the student own lunch. Students may deposit money into their cafeteria account to eliminate the need to bring cash to school every day.  Charging meals is not permitted by Hamilton Southeastern Schools.
 
The management and operation of the food services program is the responsibility of the Director of Nutrition and Food Services and the building principal. Food service personnel in each building will be directly responsible to the school cafeteria manager, and to the Director of Nutrition and Food Services.
 
FOOD SERVICE PRICES
The food service program is not open to the general public. School employees and all authorized visitors may participate in the food services program at adult prices. Vending machines other than those in the cafeteria are available after school hours for student use.
 
FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH
Eligibility for free or reduced‐price meals is determined by the criteria established by the Child Nutrition Program. It will also provide breakfast in accordance with provisions.
 
Each school annually notifies all families of the availability, eligibility requirements, and application procedure for free and reduced‐price meals by distributing an application to the family of each student enrolled in the school, and will seek out and apply for such Federal, State, and local funds as may be applied to the Corporation’s program of free and reduced‐price meals. The building administrator may complete an application for the student known to be needy if the household fails to apply. (need link)
 

NO CHARGE/STUDENT DEBT POLICY

All students, adults, and employees of Hamilton Southeastern Schools must pay by cash/check daily or prepay into their food service account through for all purchases.  Students will be provided with a regular breakfast and/or lunch daily regardless of the account balance. 
If a student’s account becomes negative, an email will be sent to the parent/guardian or the student will be given a note to take home stating that payment is due.  In addition, the food service manager will make a courtesy call to notify the parent/guardian, making certain that they are aware payment is due.
The cafeteria manager will bring any negative student balances of $20.00 or more to the attention of the Director of Nutrition & Food Services who will then send a letter to the parents requesting payment be made.  If the account remains negative $20.00 or more and no payment is received by the end of the semester, the matter will be turned over to a collection agency.  
  
If a student leaves Hamilton Southeastern Schools, no refunds of lunch balances aggregating $20.00 or less will be made.  Refunds over $20.00 will be processed through the normal claims procedure.  An online payment option is available on Family Access via eFunds under “District Links”.

At the time of enrollment, in any grade, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian of a student to provide proof of proper immunization in accordance with current Indiana law.  On the first day of attendance, a student without proof of proper immunization is considered in violation of Indiana law, and will not be allowed to attend school unless the Superintendent or the student designee determines that the student qualifies for a waiver or extension as allowed by applicable law.  A student in the process of obtaining immunizations may attend school, but a statement from the physician or Health Department is required.  A waiver may be granted due to religious or health reasons as allowed by law.  Each school will maintain an immunization record of its students.  Each school will annually file a written report to the State Board of Health as required by law.  Please click the following link for information about online enrollment:  https://www.hseschools.org/about/enrollment
 
STUDENTS TRANSFERRING TO HSE HS         
  1. Students moving into Hamilton Southeastern Schools will be accepted as transfer students
  2.  The following information is needed to enroll:
  • proof of residency 
  • birth certificate 
  • immunization record 
  • current grades or transcript at the time of withdrawal from the previous school
In cases where students live with one parent due to divorce or separation, proof of physical custody may be required.  Students in special education programs must provide a copy of the student’s most recent IEP and the results of the student’s most recent educational evaluation.  Once the required enrollment information is gathered, the parents and student must make an appointment with the appropriate guidance counselor for an enrollment conference.
  1. A student enrolling only for the second semester will not be scheduled for a full year class unless they have taken the first semester at their previous school.
  2. For a variety of reasons, a student may wish to enroll in a different/higher level course. Reasons might include exposure to or knowledge of subject content attained prior to high school, in the workplace, or within the family environment.  With the approval of the instructor, a student may take a placement test to see if a more advanced level course is appropriate.  Credit may be earned only for the studies successfully completed at the secondary level.
  3. Students who transfer will be ranked with their class the semester following two full semesters of attendance at HSE High School.
  4. Transfer students interested in athletics should make an appointment with the athletic director to complete the IHSAA transfer forms. 
WITHDRAWAL
  1. A student anticipating withdrawal from school should have a parent/guardian contact the Guidance Department at least one day before the final attendance day.  On the final day of attendance, the student must obtain a withdrawal form from the Guidance office.  Signatures from appropriate staff must be obtained.  This allows teachers to be notified and to release grades earned at that time.  An official withdrawal form can then be carried by the student to the new school.  All obligations — book rental, library, textbooks returned — must be completed before a transcript will be sent to the receiving school.
  2. HSE High School will forward educational and health records to a school where a student intends to enroll upon request.   

LATE ENROLLMENT
Students who have been enrolled in another school corporation will be accepted as transfer students whenever the family moves to Hamilton Southeastern Schools. However, a student may not receive credit at HSE High School after the third week (15 school days) of a semester unless the student has been enrolled in another school corporation during that time.  Proof of residency, transcripts, current grade information, birth certificate, and health records must be provided before an incoming student will be enrolled.  A student enrolling only for a second semester will not be scheduled for a full year class unless the student has taken the first semester.
 
 ADMISSION OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENTS
The Board recognizes the positive cultural benefits to the students, staff, and the community in meeting students from other countries and in having foreign exchange students as members of the student body of this corporation.  Students will be accepted from foreign countries each year subject to the approval of the building principal and the Superintendent.  A minimum of 60 days’ notice from the sponsoring agency or family prior to enrollment of a student is deemed necessary to properly accommodate the student.  The agency must be an Indiana State Board of Education approved program.  Foreign exchange students must adhere to all school regulations and must reside in housing of a sponsoring family.  Such foreign exchange students will be considered resident students for the period they remain with the approved family residing in Hamilton Southeastern School District.  The number of foreign exchange students will be limited to five students per semester.  The planned length of stay for a foreign exchange student is to be no less than one semester and no longer than two semesters.  Foreign exchange students who spend one school year at HSE High School are required to take one semester of United States History, one semester of United States Government, and two semesters of English.  A HSE High School diploma will not be issued to a foreign exchange student.  Foreign exchange students interested in athletics should make an appointment with the athletic director complete the IHSAA transfer forms.
 
RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS 

Resident students are those whose legal settlement is within the corporation’s geographic boundary.  A student’s legal settlement will be determined under applicable Indiana law.  A student’s legal settlement will also determine the student’s school attendance area within Hamilton Southeastern Schools.  Any question in regard to a student’s legal settlement must be directed to the office of the superintendent (594‐4100).  Student's legal settlement not in attendance area:  A student may be expelled from school if the student’s legal settlement is not in the attendance area of the school corporation where the student is enrolled.  (I.C. 20‐33‐8‐17)
