The HCS Community would like to thank the many businesses and friends who reached out to us in our time of need and helped to restore our learning community at our temporary location in Jersey City. Thanks to you, our students were able to return to learning in a fully functioning facility with rich instructional materials on September 18th 2012 — having missed only 6 days of school!

The fire on Sept. 6th destroyed much of our school building at 713 Washington St. Fortunately, through the swift actions of staff, children, and Hoboken first responders, we suffered only the loss of the building and its physical contents. The HCS community quickly secured an interim facility to resume instruction and committed all of our resources to replace and rebuild all that was lost at 713 Washington. Through Operation Restoration, and the generosity of dozens of supporters, we were able to begin the restocking of all materials lost in the fire…from office supplies, to textbooks, to library materials, to art and music supplies, to scientific equipment, to classroom and office furniture, to technology/electronic equipment, to physical education and sporting goods, as well as new backpacks for students K-4.
