HHA has partnered with the Baltimore City Health Department to offer the Pfizer two-dose COVID vaccine at HHA. The clinic for the first dose will take place at HHA Tuesday, July 27th between 3 and 7 pm.  The second dose will be given at HHA Tuesday, August 17th from 3-7 pm.  Anyone 12 years of age and over is eligible, but only City Schools’ students from any City School, ages 12-17 who are accompanied by an adult, will be eligible for the Sony PS-5 raffle. Walk-ups are invited as well.  The HHA vaccination clinic sign-up link is listed here: https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=OPSkn-axO0eAP4b4rt8N7K3U3MC2v9hOh83Rx5BjGkFUQUY3OU9YUk4wNk1LNk5aUkJQMks2MTJPRi4u  Both shots are required for a student to be included in the raffle. There will probably be fewer than 100 students in the raffle, so you might win that Playstation! Also, a student can increase their chance of winning by bringing a friend who is also a City School student to the HHA vaccination clinic. For any HHA student who is already vaccinated, you can take a picture of your vaccination card and email it to Mr. Hornbeck at principalhornbeck@hha47.org to have your name included in the raffle.

Kindergarten Placement Testing – July 22nd & August 10th


Do you have an incoming kindergarten student? To ensure that the beginning of the year runs smoothly, we will test all kindergarten students before the start of the 2021-2022 school year. All incoming kindergarteners must attend one of the two kindergarten assessment days. The assessments will take place on July 22nd and August 10th from 8:00 AM to 3:15 PM. Kindergarten students will be assessed in the areas of math and language. No preparation is needed! You simply need to bring your child at the selected time. If you are unable to attend either session, your child will be placed into a temporary homeroom until the assessment can take place the first week of school. If your child is fully registered for kindergarten, please call the HHA office to ensure you get your preferred date and time. Appointments can be made via email to Academic Coach, Katie Johnson, at kjohnson@hha47.org or through Ms. Varner, our school secretary, at 410-396-9146. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
