SENIORS: Your senior photos are due TODAY! Please check this list to see if I have received them. If you recently received a note saying you didn’t turn one in (but you’re confident you did/your photographer did), please remember that we are constantly getting emails and the notes may not be relevant by the time we get them to you. I apologize for that, it is just the nature of the beast. The list is updated multiple times daily. Send your photos to hhsyearbook@hastingsapps.org or to tphillips@hastingsapps.org ---- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nME3Rzz96ocLtFrczfJbS33d1yecWtalI_BrbOqzuzo/edit?usp=sharing

Next week, we want to see your spookiest, funniest, most creative costumes on display. On Tuesday (10/27) and Friday (10/30), STUDENT COUNCIL is looking for the best costumes in your 5th hours. Come dressed to impress and win a Halloween treat.*O
One note per CDC guidelines:
o   Do not use a costume mask (such as for Halloween) as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around your face.
o   Do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask because it can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.

MASKS and DISTANCINING!!  Students and staff – as we enter the cold and flu season in addition to a COVID pandemic – please make an extra commitment to wear masks properly and practices social distancing.  This means wearing masks properly, with seals around the edges and entirely covering the nose and mouth.  We are seeing that lunch is a time when we may be letting our guards down.  Remember – the better we all do the safer we all are – and we can keep coming to school!  Go Raiders – thank you!

If you have a preferred name/preferred pronouns please send Ms. Phillips an email ASAP so we can ensure your name is correct in the yearbook this year. Email: tphillips@hastingsapps.org
