Dear Bulldog Families:


Welcome to 2020-21! As we plan for a beginning like no other we have seen in the past, our focus will still be to ensure that:

  • Every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected,
  • Every child, every day is being challenged by new learnings and experiences, and
  • Every child, every day knows they have a superhero they can turn to.

Spring of 2020 has challenged staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways and required our superheros to champion from afar.  What I have most learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to HCS, the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow and overall, appreciation for the little things in life - giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with many people around.  What I MOST appreciate about HCS is how even under circumstances we have never experienced we are still a learning and caring community.  

Normal is such a simple word and it is our goal at HCS to not only find our new normal, but to use this time as a learning experience that will forever impact the learning environment of HCS.  Every week there are new types of learning experiences teachers are piloting and much of what is learned will continue to be used in the future.  Our fall may not be “normal,” but our learning will not only continue, but it will thrive.  We can’t wait to move on to the next phase of learning under Covid-19 and we know, all returning and new students to HCS will be welcomed with open arms (from 6 feet away) to our community - we will continue to grow!      

All students who have an IEP (Individualized Education Program with Special Education services) or a 504 Plan are required by law to have their plans reviewed and updated yearly.  For this school year, all CSE and 504 Plan meetings will be held on Thursdays AND will be conducted remotely using Google Meets, beginning in November.  For your planning purposes our office will be sending a letter to you in late September with the projected month and Thursday date for your child’s meeting.

We are committed to supporting our students and their families in every way we can, so please don't hesitate to reach out to teachers and school administrators with questions or concerns.

Respectfully,

Tina Bush
