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!

Please remember that if your child is exhibiting any symptoms related to COVID-19, including sniffles, cough, stomach ache, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. he/she should stay home for 24 hours from symptoms (without medication). Testing for COVID-19 should still be considered.

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!

Pancake Tuesday

Fifth Grade celebrated “Pancake Tuesday” today! Pancake Day is a traditional feast day in Europe (the region we are currently learning about in Social Studies) before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. This day has been celebrated for hundreds of years, and was the last opportunity for Christians to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast… and pancakes are the perfect way to use up those ingredients!

Found Key Fob

During the week of February 14-18, a car remote was found in the school parking lot. It only has the lock/unlock buttons and the alarm button. It does say on the back that it is from the Ford Motor Company.

Please let the school office know if this is your remote.
