SCHOOL REMINDERS:

* In the morning the front driveway is roped off for safety. Our 7th and 8th grade students line up outside the front doors. To keep our 7th and 8th graders safe, and any students arriving late, do not use the front driveway until after 8:15am. We have noticed cars backing into the driveway as well as entering the driveway from the wrong direction. We can all stay safe if we follow the school policy.

* An absence or tardy must be reported to the front office by 9:00am. The front office is responsible for ensuring that all St. Hugo students are accounted for. If you are emailing your student’s teacher, please include the front office (kelly.ryan@sthugoschool.org) in your email. If an absence or tardy is not reported to the front office by 9:00am you will receive a phone call. Students that arrive to school after 8:15am are considered tardy and they need to report to the front office for a tardy slip.

* St. Hugo follows the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines with respect to fever. Your student should stay home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine. This also applies to any parent volunteers and siblings that may be accompanying them.

7TH AND 8TH GRADE DANCE is Friday, April 15 from 6:00pm-8:00pm in the gym. Admission is $10 and students will have the option to purchase candy at the dance or make a donation to support the Flint Water Supply Crisis. We hope to see all 7th and 8th graders on the dance floor!

COMPUTER RECYCLING will take place Friday, April 8 – Sunday, April 10 from 8:30am-5:00pm each day. During your “spring cleaning” please gather old computers, printers, and other electronic equipment and get them ready to recycle. Please, no CRT monitors or TV’s due to mercury gas. Recycling will take place at the maintenance garage which is adjacent to the Ladies of Charity.

DIVINE MERCY, a documentary on the original image of the divine mercy depicted by St. Faustina, will be shown at The Maple Theatre on Monday, April 4 at 7:00pm. Admission is $20. For more information contact Antonia Kassab at antoniakassab@yahoo.com.

The Mission of St. Hugo of the Hills School is to provide students with an educational experience in which the teachings of the Catholic faith are instilled, nurtured, and demonstrated. These teachings constitute an integral part of the school’s academic program and the St. Hugo community. Strengthened by the values inherent in these teachings, students and staff are challenge to live with the conviction that, as followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.
