Hello HC Families!

Thank you for continuing with your classes! After watching the pre-recorded lessons and completing homework, please keep attending the midweek Meets as a way of fun connection with your teachers.

Teachers are still available to receive questions via email if students have any questions about what is expected of them.

Have a great week!

Concerning Family Balances
Balances Are Now Due!

First of all, thank you to our families who have paid their balances in full! As a small business we appreciate that you are remembering us and the services we have provided your family. 

I’m sure you have noticed I have been sending out invoices as a reminder that your bill is due. We extended our deadline for payments through April 24, now that April 24th has come and gone we ask those of you who still have a balance to please pay it or reach out to me so we can discuss a plan to pay off your balance. We are willing to work with you, but need to have contact. 

If you are unsure whether or not you have a balance, simply log on to Orbund and check your account. 

Registration will be opening SOON and any previous balance must be paid in full before you can register for classes. 

As you know, we have reduced our lunch and study hall fees by 50% this semester, which is reflected in your account. If you now have a credit because of the reduction of those fees, it will be applied to next semester's class fees, not registration fees. 

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
