Pennies for Patients - Fundraiser

Hyde Park has a long tradition of raining money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through their Pennies for Patients platform. This year we are doing it virtually as a grade-level competition. Please share your grade level web-page to help raise money for this great cause. HPMS has been the highest fundraiser in the CCSD the last 3-years. Let's keep that up.

CCSD to return to Hybrid Learning

I hope this message finds you all doing well. As you may have heard, CCSD will be transitioning to a Hybrid Instructional Model for 6th graders starting on March 22nd and 7th and 8th graders on April 6. We are still receiving guidance on how our plan can be created to best meet the needs of our students, staff, and community. Once we have more definitive information it will be shared with you. Thank you for your continued patience and support while we transition to a Hybrid Model.
