Dear HSWC Families,

We hope this message finds you safe and healthy with your family. Starting today, we are launching a newsletter to keep you informed about our initiatives during school closure. We know that this is a difficult time for everyone and we believe clear communication can help to alleviate some of the uncertainty, anxiety and fears our community may be experiencing. We want you to know that all of us at High School of World Cultures are working 24/7 to provide you with as much support as possible.
The HSWC team is committed to ensuring that our community and student body remains informed and stimulated through these unprecedented times. Whenever possible we will seek out creative and productive solutions to questions that the community has posed.
We will continue to update the community as new information is available.
