Greetings Bulls, 

We are following HCS's No Cell Phone Policy. Please do not text or facilitate texts from your child during the school day. On several occasions, a student has had a consequence in alignment with the policy and BLG and it was their parent they were texting with! Please remind your child, if they need to use their phone or call home, they simply need to ask an adult in the building. We are happy to help! 

The end of the third grading period is just two weeks away. As Spring arrives, grades can slip as students become distracted. Please help your child by setting a time each week to have your child show you his/her grades and for them to explain their classwork, grades, and missing assignments. You can also help by assisting your child in sending his/her teacher a Schoology message if there is a question about a grade or assignment. Building their independence and ability to advocate for themselves is the goal! Thanks for your help.  

Go Bulls!
