Attention Parents: "Senior Skip Day" (Click Here)

Parents, please be aware of the following message from our Principal, Dr. Hank Stopinski. You can click the link above for the actual letter.

Dear Senior Parent/Guardian:
I am writing to ask for your assistance with an issue that arises with our seniors each and every year – “Senior Skip Day.” It has been brought to my attention that many seniors are planning to skip school on Friday, May 26th. Please know that May 26th is a regular school day and all students are expected to be in attendance on that day as well as every day that is scheduled as a regular day of attendance.
Student safety and well-being is always our common priority. The condoning of your son/daughter intentionally missing school with the possibility of meeting with other students for social activities does not correspond with this intention. In most situations, these gatherings are unsupervised and may involve a variety of risk-taking behaviors. I ask that you not allow your son/daughter to miss school to participate in Friday’s rumored Senior Skip Day or any other skip day that may be organized throughout the remainder of the school year, even though you may hear your student say, “Everyone else is doing it.” We care about your student too much to condone any activity that may compromise their safety.
I look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your student has a safe, memorable senior year and sincerely appreciate your continued support.

Afterschool Activities Cancelled 5/1/17

HSCS Community:

Please be advised that due to a weather advisory (Severe Thunderstorms & Tornado watch) in effect until 10:00 p.m. this evening, all after school activities (after 3:45 p.m.) are canceled. I ask that the building be cleared no later than 4:30 p.m. for all staff.

"A tornado watch (SAME code: TOA) is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms called a Supercell that are capable of producing tornadoes. A tornado watch therefore implies that it is also a severe thunderstorm watch."

Thank you in advance.
