Communication is
the key at HCSD!
Hello, friends! We are pleased to welcome all of our students and staff back for the second semester of the 2021-2022 school year. We are excited for what lies ahead of us over the next five months!

I am extremely grateful for the ongoing, amazing show of support HCSD has received from the community throughout the implementation of our ’Cat Restoration reopening process for the 2021-2022 school year. And, although it seems as though our battle against COVID-19 has been never-ending, I am pleased to report there appear to be some extremely encouraging possibilities to look forward to over the near horizon.

Specifically, it appears as though the Omicron variant has reached its peak and we are hoping the New York State Education Department (NYSED) will soon begin to ease face-covering mandates as the days grow longer and temperatures warm. And while there are no certainties moving forward, we choose to remain optimistic and hope for the best! We will be sure to quickly communicate and disseminate all updated COVID-19 regulatory information as it is made available to us by NYSED and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).

I encourage you to read and enjoy the next edition of the Hancock Wildcat News, where our theme is communication. In the human services industry in general, and in public education more specifically, the ability to effectively communicate is an extremely important skill. At the Hancock Central School District, we take great pride in utilizing various analogous and digital communication tools as to proactively seek to engage our many, and varied, internal and external stakeholders.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.
