Don' Forget and Things To Do!

  • Create an OmniFund account. You can do this from the HCS home page.
  • We are excited about the Coke machine in the workroom. Please remember NO STUDENTS should have access to the machine. Do not send students to get drinks.
  • Food and drinks should stay in the cafeteria. Many students are saying that teachers tell them it is ok to bring breakfast for lunch to the room. At this time, we are not equipped for Breakfast in the Classroom so don't encourage students to bring items to the pod or classrooms.
  • From Dr. Summerville: Snack and recess cannot be taken away from students as a form of discipline.
  • Mark your calendar for Wellness Screening on Feb 17. Nurse Hanks will provide more details soon.
