Pray to God to have mercy upon us
And pray that we may forget
These matters that we discuss too often
And explain too much.
We do not hope to turn again
So let these words answer
For what is done, not to be done again.
May the judgment not be too heavy upon us
Yet teach us to be still.
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death

Let's Stay Healthy!
Note: Due to the decline in cases, and as protocols begin to scale back and we operate with increasing normalcy, there will no longer be routine updates to the HCCS COVID Site Plan and the COVID-19 Dashboard will only be kept current at the school office. This information will no longer be posted on the school website.
Thank you for your cooperation and diligence!
