We get it. People like their information fast, simple, at-a-glance. And we generally do our best to accommodate. However, in the interest of accuracy (avoiding conflicting information), timeliness (distributing info as broadly and quickly as possible) and efficiency (focusing our efforts where they matter most), we try to avoid redundancy as much as possible.
For this reason, as well as the numerous reasons linking to PDFs from websites is a bad idea, we are avoiding the practice as much as possible.
We’re glad you asked! The Elementary and Upper School Weekly newsletters are an essential source of timely information regarding the most important happenings, needs and accomplishments within the school. We strive for a balance of thoroughness, conciseness/scan-ability, readability and occasionally a little bit of fun!
Many people ask us to add them to the email list. However, our email service provider, MailChimp, discourages this in the interest of anti-spam regulation compliance. Therefore, we strongly echo their recommendation that individuals subscribe themselves via our online form. It’s simple, fast and conveniently located at the bottom of the HCA Community Portal homepage.

RenWeb, our SIS (School Information System) provider, was purchased in 2018 by FACTS Management. Recently, they rebranded the entire SIS to FACTS. In time, the rebrand will be fully implemented. Currently, some of the URLs (web addresses) and page headings still say RenWeb. However, these will be phased out eventually.
