School Supplies

If you are interested, the PWT has worked with 1st Day School Supplies so that you can order your supplies online and have them delivered to HHES. You must be able to pick them up on back to school night at HHES (8/24, 5-7pm) so that you can deliver them to your child's classroom. This is optional for families, it is not a requirement.

Monthly Safety Drill

We are partnering with Fire District 3 to conduct an on-campus AED Drill so we can learn how to respond to different types of emergencies as a team. Next week, we will be sharing with students about the drill. We will be using a mannequin during the drill and we will be showing students the mannequin letting them know that it will be used during a drill at the end of the week.
