Principal's Message (September 14)

Greetings Bulls,

We are so excited to continue to “see” our HVA students through Zoom and to start “seeing” our traditional students in the building! This week will bring changes and challenges we can manage together. I commend you, our parents, and the HCMS staff for handling the past two months with professionalism and courtesy. Please continue to reach out to your child’s teachers with questions. They are all eager to help and support our students.

A few ways you can help:

  • HVA students and Cohort students at home join live instruction daily
  • Check your child's grades in iNow

  • Double check for a mask before you leave for school
  • Have your child charge his Chromebooks at night & leave the charger at home
  • Do not drop your child off before 7:30 a.m.
  • If your child walks, do not have them arrive before 7:30 a.m.
  • Be patient in the car line – smile –

Our Daily School Schedule: We will not run a rotating bell schedule during cohort instruction.
