Elementary School- May 1st, 2021

A Note from your Principal

Hello HCS Families!


Spring is in the air! I love Spring because it is literally a time of growth and rebirth. The flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and we see the sun (and smiling faces) more often! Spring is also a time to reflect on all the progress you have seen your child make this year. It is a great time to renew your energy to help your child have a great end of the school year. Please encourage them to share with you things that have "sprung anew" this year.


(After several minutes of "nothing" and "I don't know" from my 9-year-old son, I was actually able to get some great really insights out of him!)


I look forward to a wonderful rest of the school year!


Sincerely,

Natalie Pfluke

Important Update

Effective Monday, May 3, Mrs. Whitney Cornish in the Nurse's Office will be taking over generating bus passes and pick-up notices. If you are picking your child up early, or making any changes to their dismissal procedures, please be sure to notify Mrs. Cornish with written communication or by calling the office by 12:30 at (585) 229-5171 x3013.


Also to note- if your child is going to be a car rider for any reason, our dismissal process looks different this year. Please reach out to Kathy Hoertz who will provide you with a number and directions regarding this year's parent pick process.


Thank you!
