IMPORTANT REMINDER: It is extremely important for you to show up for your assigned morning parking lot duty. Please make sure you sign-in on the sheet across from the Fr. Esper Room and take a reflective vest (you may end up with an extra parking lot duty assignment if you forget to sign in!). If you have a conflict and cannot fulfill your obligation on your assigned day please trade with another family. The presence of parent volunteers during morning drop-off is essential in keeping all of our children safe, preventing accidents, and keeping traffic flowing. ALL morning drop-offs should be made using the carpool line – parents should not be parking and walking their children across the carpool line. Drop-offs to the Hickory Grove entrance should only be made if your arrival is past 8:15am.




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.
