Traffic Control

HFCA is in the “Construction Spirit” and deployed “traffic control personnel” during morning arrival this week. We are so excited as construction on our brand new high school facility is well-underway and renovations slated to begin in early 2024 converting our current school into a middle school.

Construction Update: December 15

The construction site buzzed with activity this week as construction crews ready the building for the roof installation scheduled to begin in January. The new high school facility will soon be a vibrant home for up to 500 scholars!

Notice: Parent/Teacher Conferences Rescheduled

In response to feedback from our families regarding early-year vacations and scheduling challenges, the Parent-Teacher Conferences originally planned for January 4 and 5 will be rescheduled. Thank you to those who have voiced your concerns. We truly appreciate your continued involvement in our decision making.

This Week’s Attendance

It’s a special day that bridges the past and present, fostering a sense of community and shared growth. We encourage every scholar to attend Alumni Day on December 20. It is an amazing day.
