Dear Parents:

Today is the last student day for the 2021-2022 year.  Elementary Students dismiss at 12:45.

 I’m so pleased with how the year at H-BC Elementary went.  It’s so amazing to see the progress our students have made throughout the school year!  Thanks to such a great  staff, students and parents at H-BC Elementary we are able to provide for our students!

Please be on the lookout for end of the year report cards coming the first week of June.  Also, looking towards next year, be on the lookout for the back to school registration in early August.    Have a wonderful summer break!    

                                                                            - Mr. Holthaus, Elementary Principal

NUT AWARE SCHOOL: H-BC Elementary School is a peanut/tree nut allergy aware area.  There will be no classroom projects with peanut butter or peanut shells.  Please do not send any of these projects into the classroom with your child.  It is our hope that parents, who send a lunch from home for their child, CHOOSE NOT TO send foods containing peanut butter or nuts.
