Happenings on the Hill:
The flu season is upon us. In an effort to help reduce flu within the schools, please read the article published on the Centers for Disease and Control website under recommendations for schools. As we begin our the second semester this school year, remember cold weather is just around the corner. In an effort to promote good attendance for the next 2-3 months, please read the pamphlet on ways parents can help promote good attendance.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Grant– The planning phase of the Hills Chapel Health and Wellness Building in nearly complete. The design has been approved and bids should begin around the first of March. Thanks to a grant by BCBS our students, teachers, and community will be able to use this new facility to focus on health and well-being. Another great aspect is when construction begins, a layout of the walking track will begin also. The community will be able to use the new walking track.
