• Our district has been working closely with the county’s emergency operations center in preparation of Hurricane Ian’s impact on our region. Because of this decision, the district has no choice but to close schools and suspend all after-school programs and extra-curricular activities beginning tomorrow, Monday September 26 through Thursday, September 29. For any questions regarding employment in our district, please send a detailed email to Teacher.Recruitment@hcps.net. We look forward to assisting you.
