A FREE Breakfast is served from 8:30 a.m. until 8:45 a.m. If you want your child to eat breakfast they must be at school prior to 8:45 a.m.  During the 2021-22 school year students will also receive free lunch. Lunch menus may be found at

Please remember, a picture ID is required to pick up a student and the person picking up the student MUST previously be listed on the enrollment card.
We use student planners at Hugh Bish. These planners are used to help students learn organization skills, track their own school work, keep a list of spelling words, upcoming test and other events, as a reference of the day’s work accomplishments, and as a daily communication tool between home and school. The planners we use are available ONLY at our school for a small cost of $5.00 each. See the office staff to purchase one.

Hugh Bish School Song: We are the knights of Robin Hood’s land. Gallant, brave, and strong we stand. Nowhere in all the world around, can a finer school be found. Orange and green our colors bright. With brotherhood our hearts unite. So let’s work together; it’s our best rule. Cheering loud and long for Hugh Bish School.
