Cough Drop Policy

Cough drops are considered an over the counter medication, which require a form to be completed before they are dispensed. Please click here for a copy of the form. Have your child bring the completed form along with the bag of cough drops down to the office if they are needed during the day.

Winter Weather Guidelines

The days are shorter. The weather is colder. It’s the time of year when snow and ice can cause HSSD to close, delay opening, or dismiss early. Here is what you can expect when inclement weather arrives:

In addition, if inclement weather causes HSSD to close during the 2022-23 school year, we will plan to have a traditional snow day. Should circumstances arise, a virtual learning day will only be used as necessary to meet the annual instructional minutes requirement.
