Exciting day for HCHS!!! Senior banners are going up around town. We want to send out a huge thank you to many people and organizations who helped make this dream a reality. Benham Electric, Herc-U-Lift and Lake Cointry Power, thank you for your support. Roadside Market, the Hill City Area Community Fund, Hill City School staff and Riverwood Healthcare Center, thank you for your financial support. These banners represent the tremendous team we have at Hill City School. The banners were suggested in an all staff email ("I wonder if we could do something like this for our seniors?"), and from there Greg Tulla and Eric Hill really grabbed the idea and ran. Mr. Tulla took on the huge job of raising funds, and staff jumped in eagerly to sponsor a senior banner. They also had to get quotes, coordinate with the city, find the hardware, get senior pics with high enough resolution, find people willing to put them up....and it all came together in a matter of weeks. Really amazing, congratulations to the class of 2020!
Hill City School Updates
Hill City Public Schools Families:
We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of one positive COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) case at Hill City School. All students and staff that have been exposed or in close contact have been notified and told to quarantine for the required 14 days. Despite the MDH guidelines that suggest possible exposure was limited, you should still monitor for symptoms of illness. Other students do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. MDH does not specifically recommend that non-close contacts be tested for COVID-19 at this time. However, many local testing options are available. If your child starts feeling ill, isolate at home and away from other household members as much as possible right away. The main symptoms to watch for are fever, cough, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, feeling tired, loss of taste or smell and diarrhea and vomiting.
Since school began on September 8, this is the second confirmed case in Hill City Schools. We ask that students, staff, and community continue to follow the guidelines and help keep Hill City Schools safe. We thank you for your understanding during this time.
