HBC Jr. High / Sr. High Bulletin
October 30, 2020
H-BC Secondary Families:
Please continue to practice social distancing during the weekend. As numbers go up in Rock County, we need to do what we can to STAY IN SCHOOL to learn and to participate in co-curricular activities.
Please take a moment to look at the November Newsletter if you have not done so already.
Daylight Savings Reminder (New)
Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour for the end of Daylight Savings time on Sunday at 2 am, November 1st.
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!
November 4th - Picture Retake Day (Repeat)
A reminder that picture retakes are on November 4th if your student missed the first opportunity to get their picture taken.

Cold Weather and Dressing Appropriately (Repeat)
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.

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.
