Chromebooks: We will begin collecting student issued Chromebooks on Monday, May 5th beginning with 8th grade. Students are responsible for returning their Chromebook in good, working condition. They must also return the Chromebook charger. The fees associated with the Chromebook are as follows: Charger replacement: $55; Keyboard replacement: $60; Chromebook replacement: $450.00. If your student's Chromebook is damaged and you would like to submit an insurance claim, please do so in the Front Office no later than Friday, April 17th (please note that all submitted insurance forms must be approved by the insurance company; if the Chromebook is unable to be repaired by the insurance company, then you will be responsible for the cost to replace or repair).

Lunch Accounts: Students who have a negative balance of $10 or more on their lunch account effective Wednesday, April 1, 2015 will no longer be able to purchase a lunch from the school until their balance is paid. You are able to make payment in the Front Office or via the parent portal.


We will have a second fundraiser beginning Monday, March 30th- Thursday, April 30th. The prizes will be as follows: For 1 box sold you will receive a $15 gift card. For 2 boxes sold, you will receive a $30 gift card and a free dress day pass. Therefore, if you sell 3 boxes, you will receive a $45 gift card and 1 free dress day pass. If you sell 4 boxes, you will receive a $60 gift card and 2 free dress passes. Please help support this fundraiser as all funds received goes back to the students for different school activities.

Note from Nurse Carmen: The nurse is in need of Kleenex! Please donate a box; you can turn it into the front office or Nurse Carmen’s office. Thank You!

Athletic Field Donations: We have added a link on the HSB website for donations for the athletic field. You can still send checks to the front office, but we thought some might like this option better. Anyone can use this option so please spread this information to any possible donor.

Lost and Found: All items in the lost and found will be donated this Friday the 10th; please have your child take a look to see if anything belongs to them by Friday.
