A message from the Cougar Library:

Wednesday, October 28th is the last day to bring back overdue library books! This deadline has been set for all HCPS Libraries. Place books in the bin at the main entrance to HCMS or in the bin in the bus loop from 7:45 AM to 3:45 PM on school days. You may also drop them off at the book return bin at any other HCPS school. All students with overdue books have received a Schoology message, and parents/guardians have received an email with the title(s) of the overdue book(s).

 

There are still 241 HCMS students who have not returned 458 books checked out during the 2019-2020 school year. Unfortunately, if these books are not returned, other students will not be able to enjoy them. We want to ensure that all students have fair and equitable access to all library books, but we are unable to do so when hundreds of books are lost from our collection. Please be a part of the solution by bringing your books back.

 

Meals at The Creek:

Breakfast & Lunch Service

*Please note HCMS will be distributing meals from our bus loop. Distribution of free meals will take place at all elementary, middle, and high schools.

Monday through Thursday (Friday meals are distributed on Thursdays.)

7 AM – 9 AM:  Hot breakfasts (when available) and cold lunches.

11:30 AM – 1:30 PM: Hot lunches as well as cold breakfasts for the next day.

 

Have a great weekend!!!
