From the desk of Principal Matt Hornbeck

Dear HHA Parents,

Welcome back!  HHA needs you to take action.  Because we no longer complete lunch applications, the district cannot accurately counts students and their families.  Without a count based on family income, HHA loses hundreds of thousands of dollars, field trips, loan forgiveness for teachers, fresh fruits and vegetables, and gets compared to much wealthier, more advantaged schools.  In the last three years, HHA has lost 49% of our poverty rate because the district cannot count our kids correctly.  YOU CAN HELP NOW!  We are participating in a City Schools pilot.  Fair Funding Forms (FFF) will be completed by every HHA family for each child in the family.  We need 100% participation.  Forms will be sent home Monday, September 9th and take five minutes to complete.  Please return the form the next day to your child’s homeroom teacher.  If you misplace the form, you can come to the office and complete one.  Thank you for your help with this important initiative.
