H-BC Secondary Families:

We finally had our first E-Learning Day (snow day) at HBC!   I am hoping your student was able to complete their Blue Day Classes (Periods 2,4,6 and 8).   A friendly reminder that students will be counted as absent if they did not attempt or complete the E-Learning school work assigned.   Students will have 5 days (till 12/15/21) to complete the assigned work.
