Parents, please contact Mr. Shaw, technology coordinator, for the login information to set up the parent access to PowerSchool. For more information, check out the PowerSchool Parent Portal guide.

YMCA Membership and Forms

All HCIS students have memberships to the YMCA. To make this official, students need to fill out three forms. Two contain basic information and require a parent signature. The third form is for using the wellness center. The wellness center has treadmills, other machines, and weights. A doctor must sign this form if the student is under sixteen. Mr. Langr's physical education class uses this space. Any students who anticipate that they will take this class before they turn sixteen should get the form signed by a doctor. If your student is sixteen years old or above, he or she does not need the doctor's signature. Please see Ms. Hexum with additional questions about YMCA memberships!

Students are required to fill out the two basic forms each year. The wellness center form stays on file in the wellness center.
