Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are excited to welcome our students and their families back to campus starting September 5th and look forward to what will surely be another incredible year of expanding minds, fostering faith, and building community at HFCS!


Parking: Our parking lot is small, and we will have many families parking and walking their students into the building and staying for Mass and the parent social. Parking will be allowed in an organized fashion on the school field directly to the north of the parking lot.

Student Entry Points: Students are allowed to begin entering the school at 7:45 am. Preschool/Extended PreK through 4th grades enter through the main school doors. Fifth-8th grades and younger siblings enter through the east entrance. All students are expected to be in their classrooms by 8 am.

Uniforms: Students are required to wear their Mass uniforms.

Mass: We will be celebrating Mass on the Grass in the school field at 8:30 am. All are invited to attend. Please bring your own lawn chair. In the event of inclement weather, Mass will be moved to the gymnasium.

Parent Social following Mass: Parents In Education is hosting a “BooHoo/Yahoo” coffee and pastries social right after Mass. We will gather on the pavement outside the Commons. In the event of inclement weather, the social will be held in the Commons.

Afternoon Pick Up: 
Pickup begins at 2:55 pm. Please remember to put a sign with your family last name (or names if you are carpooling) on the dash of your vehicle. Students not picked up by 3:15 pm will be checked into aftercare. Please see below for the carline map and rules/etiquette.
