A Message From Mrs. Klaehn

Dear HCS Families,


It seems unreal that this school year is coming to a close in two short weeks. In this last family newsletter of the school year, the most important message I can share is this: I am so incredibly proud of our students. I cannot say with certainty what September will look like, but it holds promise, and for that, I am grateful.


Thank you for raising young people who are not afraid to ask questions or to advocate for what they think is just; and thank you for reaching out time and time again with suggestions, questions, and even frustrations. Although not every obstacle encountered this year was eradicated, every conversation has brought an opportunity for improvement, and I look forward to continuing to work with you to provide the best opportunities for your students.


Warmest Regards,



Addie Klaehn

Secondary Principal

Regents Exam Score Reporting

As I have previously communicated, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the inability for schools to hold in-person instruction every day for all students, has prompted the cancellation of several exams, with the exception of those that are federally mandated (listed above). Although we are offering these exams, no student will be forced to sit for Regents exams in June of 2021.


Students who have a passing average in courses traditionally culminating in Regents exams, whether they are offered or cancelled, and whether students take the exams or not, will receive an EXEMPTION on their transcripts. Any students who sit for the exams and wish to have their test scores on transcripts must notify the counseling office by June 30, 2021.


Students who have been identified for summer school have received notification. Those who attend and receive passing scores will receive EXEMPTIONS for August 2021 Regents exams.


Please contact the counseling office or the secondary office with any questions you have; we know it's confusing!

Congratulations and Thank You for your Dedication to HCS!
