Principal's Corner

  • Virtual Learning Expectations

    Welcome to Herzog Elementary Principal's Corner



    Dear Herzog Elementary Families, 

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as your Principal. I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents.

     I look forward to working with all of you to make this school year successful. Our school staff look forward to seeing each student come to school every day and ready to learn. We will make every effort to help your child achieve academically and socially this year. It is our goal to create an enriched learning environment that engages each student. We also strive to develop compassionate students that in- turn strive to make every opportunity great. You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, school/parent communication is crucial.

    As the leader of Herzog Elementary, I strongly believe that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of academic success with the proper preparation and support. To ensure a successful school year please:


    • Make your child’s prompt attendance to school a priority – Breakfast is from 7:45 am- 8:10 am and instruction begins promptly at 8:15 am daily.
    • Provide a supportive climate for homework and make sure it is being done at a regular time and in a regular place. Routines are great for young children.
    • Allot time for reading and practicing basic math facts with your child on a nightly basis.
    • Reinforce with your child an attitude of responsibility for learning and to respect themselves, the school, staff and other students.
    • Return all requested forms and documents to school in a timely manner. 

    Our instructional program will be far more effective with your active participation. Please send your children to us well behaved, on time, in uniform, equipped with the proper materials, and ready to learn. We, in-turn will send them home to you prepared to meet the challenges of the future. We look forward to a great year!

  • Return to School Letter


    Welcome Back to Our School Building 2020-2021


    I’m glad to announce that Herzog Elementary will start an in-person instructional model from 8:15 am-2:12 pm for PK-2nd grade students beginning Monday, October 19th and 3rd-5th grade students beginning Monday, October 26th with students that selected an in-person model. Due to in-person capacity restrictions, virtual students will continue virtual learning for the entire 2nd quarter.

    All students will have to follow the new guidelines put in place due to COVID-19.  Below are the guidelines:

    • MASKS AND SAFETY – Students and staff will be required to wear a mask at all times. Parents, please send your student(s) with two (2) masks: one to wear and one for emergencies.
      • Students must remain in their assigned work areas and keep their hands to themselves.
      • Emergency masks will be available.


    • SCHOOL DAY– For arrival, students will enter in their assigned doors starting at 7:45am where their temperatures will be taken, hands sanitized, students will take a grab-and-go breakfast, and report to class. All students will eat lunch in the classroom. For dismissal, the students will be called down to their assigned doors for bus or parent pick-up starting at 2:00pm.  Once students are home, they are expected to work on their daily on-line lessons.
      • Arrival - Mimika Ave. Door (PreK-1st grade)
      • Arrival - Pamplin Pl. Door (2nd-5th grade)
      • Dismissal - Walkers and Pick-up, Pamplin Pl. Door
      • Dismissal - Bus Riders, Mimika Ave. Door


    • EARLY DISMISSAL/CHANGES TO USUAL PICK-UP – Early dismissal is by 1:30 p.m. If you do not arrive before 1:30 p.m., you may pick your student up at the normal dismissal time. If you need to change your pick-up plan, or you need an early dismissal, you must call the office by 1:00 p.m. There will be absolutely no exceptions to these policies.


    • BUILDING PROCEDURES FOR PARENTS – Due to COVID-19 and new SLPS regulations: Parents, are required to call and/or schedule an appointment to visit. All visitors will be required to wear mask and complete the health screening prior to entering the building. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact, Helton (school secretary) in the office. She will direct you to the right person, or schedule an appointment for you, if needed. You can contact her at (314) 385-2212.


    • ATTENDANCE is very important. For your child to continue in-person learning, they must be present and on time daily.  If attendance becomes a concern, your child is subject to return to virtual learning and their in-person placement will be given to another student.


    • COVID-19 SAFETY is very important. For your child to continue in-person learning, they must adhere to wearing face coverings and social distancing. If COVID-19 safety becomes a concern, your child is subject to return to virtual learning and their in-person placement will be given to another student.
