HBC Jr. High / Sr. High Bulletin
October 23, 2020
H-BC Secondary Families:
Week #7-Homecoming Week is complete! Homecoming did look a little different this year, but we still were able to keep some traditions and had a lot of fun with dress-up days, Coronation and a Kickball Tournament (weather permitting).
Please continue to practice social distancing during the weekends. As numbers go up in Rock County, we need to do what we can to STAY IN SCHOOL to learn and also STAY IN SCHOOL to participate in co-curricular activities.
We also have an early dismissal next Thursday, October 29th (see below).
Here are some photos from Week #7.

COVID-19 Update - Do you send Your Student to School or Not? (Repeat)
As the school year is in full swing across the state, we are noticing that there is confusion about when students or staff members should stay home from school and for how long. There is confusion between the distinctions of when individuals are sick and/or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and when they have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19. We highly encourage everyone to review the COVID-19 decision tree exclusion guidance, as it’s called, which lays out a number of scenarios and appropriate steps for children, students and staff.
DO NOT FORGET TO SCREEN YOUR STUDENT REMINDER: (Repeat) Make sure to screen your child everyday, prior to coming to school! Here is the link for Screener. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
Thursday, October 29th - Early Dismissal (New)
Thursday, October 29, 2020 is now an early dismissal for the H-BC School District. Early dismissal Times are as usual--12:30 at the Secondary School and 12:45 at the Elementary School.
The reason for this added dismissal is to allow for a time of catch up for students, teaching staff, and added cleaning of our facilities. Thank you for your patience and your flexibility.
October is National Bully Prevention Month (Repeat)
October is National Bully Prevention Month. HBC Secondary has been learning how we can all prevent bullying. Each Monday, students have been learning about bullying and what they can do to stop it. This is occurring during the Monday Advisory period which is called Monday Patriot Life.
Also, please do your part to ‘stomp out bullying’. Please report any bullying you see at this link (also located on HBC website).
Students and Staff wore Orange on Wednesday, October 21st to show unity and to show support for preventing bullying.

Cold Weather and Dressing Appropriately (New)
Cold weather is on the way early next week...PLEASE make sure your student is prepared for the colder weather. Students will be walking to their PE classes which are located at Hugo Goehle Gymnasium which is 6 blocks away. In most cases, students will walk unless it is sleeting/snowing/icy.
Doors open at 7:45 AM (New)
Please remember that the Secondary Building’s doors do not open until 7:45 AM. Please avoid dropping students off earlier than 7:45 AM as there will NOT be supervision and the colder weather. At 7:45 AM the doors will open and students should report to Block #1. Students may also get extra help from teachers from 7:45 to 8:05 AM.
