Friday, 10/15/2021

Remember that 10/15 is our last day in this super fun spirit week. Wear the colors of your favorite Haywood County team. I’m thinking that we’ll have lots of Red and Black because the Mill>the Hill…just sayin’. We will still love you if you wear those “other” colors though:)There will be spirit items on sale right outside the cafeteria at lunch time. All items will cost $2 or less.

Thank you for putting forth the effort to help your kids participate in the various days this week; it has been a lot of fun:)

Monday and Tuesday of next week

Just a reminder that students do not come to school on Monday and Tuesday, 10/18 & 19. All students will have work to do for the Remote Learning Workday. They may do the work anytime over the long weekend. The work is due when we come back to school on Wednesday, 10/20. If the work is turned in, the student will be counted present for Tuesday, 10/19. If the work is not turned in on Wednesday, he/she will be counted absent for Tuesday.The Remote Learning Workday on Tuesday counts as a school day; that is why students have work to do.

Substitute Teacher Training Information

We are so appreciative of our substitute teachers. Subs are invaluable to our school program; we cannot do it without them.

Winter Weather Info

As hot as it’s been this week, it’s hard to even think about snow or ice…but it’s just around the corner. Please see the HCS website for more info regarding the HCS Winter Weather plan.

Good Press for HCS

The Department of Public Instruction gave a shout out to Haywood County and Madison County Schools in a blog post a few weeks ago. We received applause for our resiliency through the flood as well as our students’ high academic achievement in the midst of the pandemic.
