- School Website
In case of emergency:
The HCCS Homepage should be the first place to look for emergency information, procedures and school closings. In the event of an emergency, the website will show up-to-the-minute information, including instructions about when and where you may pick up you child. Please make yourself familiar now with the school's emergency procedures, which are detailed on the HCCS Emergency Information page.
If the administration or public officials declare a safety emergency, all students will be required to remain in the building. If evacuation is necessary, the students will be moved to the 92nd Street Y at Lexington Avenue and 92nd Street. Keep a copy of your child’s schedule with you at all times and know his or her schedule of afterschool activities. Make sure your contact information is updated in the Online Directory; if you need assistance with the Directory, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event of a family emergency:
To reach a student due to a family or medical emergency, call the HCHS Main Office at 212-860-1267 and they will make every effort to locate your child. In case of sudden illness, your child will be dismissed early only if you personally pick her/him up or have her/him sent home or to your workplace by taxi. Otherwise, s/he will remain with the school nurse.
