Heat Advisory

Due to the heat advisory in the forecast for today, HCS will be operating under our heightened awareness weather protocols.  The Heightened Awareness protocols will remain in effect throughout the duration of the heat advisory. Our schools will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of our students by limiting outdoor activities and keeping students hydrated.  Our middle and high schools will be utilizing the Alabama High School Athletic Association guidelines for outdoor heat for all our students involved in any extracurricular activities, such as sports, band, etc.

Support Destination Imagination

Destination Imagination is a volunteer-led, educational, non-profit organization that teaches 21st century skills and STEM principles to kindergarten through university level students through collaborative problem solving challenges.  Under a Team Manager's guidance, groups of 2-7 students work all year to come up with creative solutions to "challenges" in several areas: fine arts, service/learning, engineering, improv, scientific, and technical. After many months of work, they compete at a regional level, followed by state, and then global finals (if they qualify). At each level, there are registration fees and at the global level it costs $5,500.00 per team to compete. This is because it is a four day event that also requires housing and meals. 

Please consider donating to the Blossomwood Destination Imagination Go Fund Me Account to help cover the costs of these events.  Since we don't know which team will qualify, these funds will just remain in the account for any team that needs help this year or the next or the next, etc. Please spread the word and let's give these students an experience that they will carry with them for life.
