Snow Day Reminder
Many factors go into the decision to close school, but the most important is to keep our children safe. We are always cognizant of the fact that the earlier you know of a closure, the more time you have to plan. Once the decision has been made to close you can find closure information on the HA website, Facebook, and channel 12.
Hopefully, the weather will cooperate for the next few months! Power of the Pack!
