H-BC Elementary School Families:

Today marks the end of the 7th week of the Quarter Two.  

Thank you all for your hard work, flexibility and understanding in keeping our students in person!  I believe that we are greatly better off for that!  We continue to practice our safety protocols to keep our students and staff safe!  Please continue to monitor your child prior to their coming to school.

I witnessed many a tired student as we ventured back after the break!  It’s great to be back in our learning environment and routine!  

In Person Learning Continues:  

Make sure to send your child to school each day with a mask.  If you need assistance with more masks, please call Mrs. Plimpton at 507-673-2541 x10.  Mrs. Plimpton will assist.
