Principal's Message

Dear HK Tigers and Family,

We already miss having our Tigers at school with us--we miss their laughter and seeing their smiling faces. As we navigate through this together, please know we are here to support you and your family. Distance Leaning continues to be active and a daily part of our routines. Our teachers are working diligently to stay connected with you and to provide you support as you facilitate learning at home with your children. We are happy to partner with you in this journey; we truly are stronger when working together. We also understand this may not be easy, so feel free to reach out to me should you need any additional help. For updates please make sure to visit our website and/or Parent Square. We all look forward to seeing you soon and being together again. Stay safe and stay healthy. - Sincerely, Mr. Gutierrez
