This Monday, May 31 is Memorial Day, a national holiday to salute the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who lost their lives serving our country. HSD schools are closed in observance of this holiday. Classes will resume on Tuesday, June 1.
From HSD Superintendent Steve Marshall:
This coming Memorial Day weekend we honor those who have sacrificed their lives serving our nation and the cause of freedom. I am asking our teachers to be sure to educate our students on the purpose and significance of this holiday. If possible, I ask that our families reinforce the importance of Memorial Day at home so our students really understand that the day is much more than a day off. It is an opportunity for our entire country to pause, reflect, and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
On this and every Memorial Day, let us all remember those we have lost and show support for their families.
