Scholastic Book Orders

Scholastic Book Orders go home once a month. Please use the code: MHY3L and look for your director’s name as Lori Butts.  I am the one placing the orders for the whole school therefore it is under my name.

Medical Forms Due

Medical Forms are due no later than October 6!! If you have not yet turned your medical form in or have it updated to be within the last thirteen months, your child will not be allowed to attend HLCC until it is filed in the office. This is an ODJFS Licensing Rule.

Handicap Parking

Our school parking lot is marked with special spots for those whom have a “Handicap” parking tag. Please be courteous to those whom have these needs and leave the spots available for them.

Please do not park in front of the front doors. Parents and grownups are trying to enter and exit in this area.
