LifeTouch Picture Day


Like so many businesses that are struggling to find staff, Lifetouch has a shortage of photographers this year. The owner of the company called me when we were at Dinosaur Ridge and asked if we could move the dates to October. I told her no problem because the HSC Community is so wonderful and flexible that we could make that work! Also, if anyone is interested in being a photographer, please contact Nancy Gonzalez (

NEW DATES ARE: 10/12 - 10/15

October Count

September 24th - October 8th

Every year the district has a window of time called "October Count" where the district looks at our enrollment, attendance, student work, etc. Many reports are turned in for the district to determine funding for our enrichment program. This year’s October Count is Friday, September 24th until Friday, October 8th. The funding we receive is the ONLY reason we are able to provide the quality teachers and classes that we offer, so again, it is imperative that your student is present on their HSC days during this time frame. If a student misses more than one day during this window, we reserve the right to withdraw your student from the program.

For additional questions email

We know our families love to travel, and we support that fully! We ask that you try not to schedule any major trips during this time as to avoid missing your student’s HSC days.

In the event of an unplanned absence (i.e. your student is sick) please email with the following information:

  1. The date, student’s name, and reason for absence

  2. A statement that you intend to keep your student enrolled at HSC for the remainder of the 2021 - 22 school year

  3. Proof of Absence (i.e. a doctor’s note, receipt for travel, etc).

*If you miss a date within the window, the district will look at attendance on either side of the window to determine enrollment. If you can't avoid having a planned absence during the window, please make sure your student(s) are in attendance the weeks before and after as well as emailing the documentation to

Thank you!

For any questions regarding October Count please email


Birthday Booth

September 28th - October 1st

We will be celebrating birthdays this year with a birthday booth! Our first birthday booth of this school year will be the week of September 28th-October 1st, and we will be celebrating students with birthdays in August and September. Students will be called to see Ms. Antoinette at the beginning of 2nd period to get a special birthday prize, and students will have the opportunity to join some of our staff members for lunch at our birthday booth! We are looking forward to celebrating with our students!
